BANGKOK: -- The communications ministry has suggested that sweeping powers under Article 44 are unlikely to be invoked in dealing with minivans.

 

And in latest news minivans will have to use transport company bus stations upcountry for their journeys.

 

Phichit Akrathit said after a ministerial level crisis meeting on the issue that the matter of GPS and microbuses would likely be left  with transport authorities to sort out, reports Daily News.

 

It was felt that it was a civil matter.

 

All minivans are expected to be fitted with GPS devices by the end of  March and Phichit felt this was something that can be enforced by the national transport company. They should also oversee the replacement of minivans with microbuses as well, he said.

 

This refers to vans plying routes out of Bangkok to upcountry provinces.

 

While inn latest news all minivans travelling to Bangkok from upcountry will have to use transport company bus stations by January 25th at the latest, said Phichit.

As the Transport authorities have done nothing in the past, is this what all can expect moving forward?

 

It was felt that it was a civil matter.

And who is charged with protection of the civil society? Especially when the above referenced officials have failed to do so in the past.

Weren't these already supposed to be installed by the end of last year? Although they won't change anything.

What abut policing and enforcing the law which prevents carrying passengers in the backs of trucks? Like the one recently driven by a 16 year old with 20+ smuggled immigrants.

 

In other words the flavor of the week hard line taken by the PM last week has already been replaced by a new flavor. 

In the end we can expect absolutely nothing to change. Once again easy for them to talk the talk. But no one has the balls to walk the walk.

"It was felt that it was a civil matter. "

 

It is a matter of enforcement, concerns about safety and good conduct.  All of which seem to be missing once you board a minivan.

Unfortunately until the Thai indigenous population wake up and start fighting their cause, any problem will just remain a problem.....unless it hit's the pockets of the ""elite"" then the sh1t hits the fan and the problem is solved in minutes.

And the fanboys will still claim that this all-powerful, unopposed military govt are doing a great job. Trying to end carnage on the road isn't part of it. It'd involve effort and loss of revenue.
