Roi-Et: Police crackdown on noisy racers yields hundred of bikes

Recommended Posts

I am actually pleased to see this. Cops that are actually doing their jobs.

 

Sure, there will be fines and money to be made, but still.

 

When you see these kids and also grown men, revving the engine going into corners, on a bike that doesn't have a  manual clutch, it makes me think, 'what the hell are you thinking?"

 

Everyone wants to be a boy-racer. 🙂

but are they ?

 

I'm all for taking these very noisy scooters off the road - the ones that have no effective silencer and fail a proper test - you cannot measure the noise levels by looking

Bikes should be laid on the road, and have a steamroller drive over them in full view of the racers after penalising them for violation of laws.

It amazes me too, and slipping the clutch to go up steep hills 0.005% faster ... they dont understand they are destroying their own bike... and my ears...  I have quite enjoyed the lockdown regarding these up and comming fine yound ridg men (babies in the making) As for the BIB?  FINALLY..  just 25 years slow...

Helmet law could not be enforced as the (then) THB 600 were too much financial burden. 

Only once you destroy such vehicles on site beyond repair while reclaiming plate and green registration  book, only then you will be able to pass on the message. Of course the little tokens of appreciation, nicely folded under the fine pad, would be much less though. 

Lets wait and see, possibly just a one-night-stand as in soooooo many cases and in soooooo many places.
