His holiness the PM said last year that all vehicles emitting excessive pollution would be taken off the roads and scrapped... guess he forgot to notify the relovent departments...😞

Brown envelopes are being burnt instead 😂😂

Guess there are no cars with dirty exhausts in Thailand.

I mainly see dirty smoke from lorries, pickups and buses. They use the roads more often. In the UK and most developed countries taxis have a 3 monthly check up like an MOT test which would pick up dirty exhaust pipes. Motorbike drivers who take their baffles out of their exhaust pipes are also a big problem.

A proposal to prohibit trucks with more than 10 wheels from running in Bangkok areas, in a bid to reduce PM2.5 air pollution

crop burning is the majority of the pm problem not trucks.

That's the 5000 kg. Gorilla in the room that they are hoping people are stupid enough not to notice. 2.5 PM pollution is far worse in the north and north east.

I really do wish they'd think before speaking... we all knew it wouldn't happen as soon as they said it was being considered.

There's no crop burning where I live "unless you want to count a million or so BBQ's" it's similar in effect, but PM2.5 levels are high.. construction sites account for some, decrepit old buildings where concrete is falling off adds to some more... the rest are vehicles that are not running clean.
