BANGKOK: -- Police in Bangkok are working hard to reduce accidents and it was all smiles in Hua Mark this morning when a new initiative was introduced.

 

Traffic cops will be holding up hand held signs to educate the public about their driving habits, reported Daily News.

 

The one with the motorcyclists joining in with the smiles reminds riders to stay behind the white line to reduce accidents.

 

While the more somber cop has one reminding motorists not to use their phone to access the internet, play games and chat while driving.

The initiative is the brainchild of Hua Mark police in Bangkok who held a meeting in Ramkhamhaeng yesterday to explain their hands on approach to lowering the death toll on the roads.

 

The scheme is called "Thanon Khon Dee" in Thai which might be translated as "Roads for Nice Folks".

 

Spokesman Pornsak Phithakphunsin said that the scheme was to promote understanding and improve driving standards. "We want motorists to think about safety so we can reduce loss of life and damage in accidents 24/7," he said.

 

While Hua Mark chief Tawat Wongsanga said that the placards were being made at all stations in their jurisdiction.

A couple of meters past the cop and the signs will be forgotten.

All these ideas are for publicity only and are better than doing what's really needed, Enforcement with appropriate punishment but easier to churn out this BS, dress cops up as Care Bears and on and on.

Easier than actually doing the job they're supposed to.

I thought this was Sgt Nop's job? Dummy cops being replaced by dumb cops - clearly there is a demarcation issue at stake here!

If the replacement is more competent than the replaced in being a dummy, no lines are crossed. :passifier:

Wonder if there's a sign telling all drivers they have to stop, every time, when people are waiting to cross / are crossing at pedestrian crossings?

Last week it was flags with "Before and After" written on them. This week it is signs on sticks with "Roads for Nice People " written on  them. What will it be next week? My guess is it will be party balloons with an equally meaningless message. 

If you like a good laugh tune in for next week's hilarious installment of Bangkok police chiefs puerile attempts to fix Bangkok traffic.
