The PR department of Region 3 Chiang Mai reported that AI cameras installed in five districts of the northern Thai province would target motorcycle riders and pillion passengers not wearing helmets. 

 

The cameras will begin operation on December 15th and tickets will be sent automatically to the bike owner through the post.

 

Traffic deputy Pol Lt-Col Suphachai Janthara said that night time accidents accounted for 70% of all accidents in Chiang Mai.

 

He said that campaigns to promote helmet use had largely failed. 

 

It was now time to install the 24 hour cameras so that people get the message that wearing helmets will save lives. 

 

Accident prevention expert Dr theerawut Komathabutr said that 80% of vehicle owners in Chiang Mai had motorcycles. 

 

If they were all to wear helmets 100 lives a year could be saved, he claimed.

Wonder if they will be as effective as the cameras that stop the red light runners.

Anyone want to take bets on how long these CCTV cameras will remain in service? I give them a week.

Whilst they are at it they can ensure all bikes have head and tail lamps and put an end to the stealth bikes.

they were told to stop the "check points"  that made them money.

 

hence the new cameras for  red light runners,   and now helmets;

 

all about money,  though stopping red light running is a bonus.   that can kill others.

At least this way the fines are likely to be on the books and not into the pocket. Surely any method of preventing people from injury is better than none?

my edit did not go through.     stop the red light runners is great.  they hurt others

Yes I agree.

Never understand why so much fuss about the non helmet wearing.  I can see it for kids, but for adults should be an individual choice. Just like smoking 3 packs a day or stuffing/eating until you are so fat and obese you kill yourself.

and who is responsible for the pillion passenger who has no link to the licence plate or ownership of the vehicle

 

and I agree that a wearing a helmet is only a risk to the individual not wearing it, there are many other priorities on Thai roads that risk others - to many to list here
