Re: Looking for an alternative to True

Probably a waste of time, but it may make you feel better. Remember the carry on that you had with the Ford Dealer in Hua Hin?

Also a waste of time trying to use their call centre number.

Would be interesting to know how Immigration treat this, if the poor bugger has no recall of what he has said or done.

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

Yeh, these speed warnings are appearing all over Thailand. I would doubt their accuracy as going past one on the way to Tha Yang, it had my speed more than 10kms over my actual speed! I believe that this one is the same one that I posted about some time ago. How do you know what your true speed is?...

Re: E-business tax targeted to fill govt coffers

To facilitate the e-tax system, the department will need to invest 2.3 billion baht to install a big data analytics system.
Well, if their "data analytics system" works in the same way as most Goverment IT systems I would not worry too much about it!

There used to be a lady there that spoke good English, not sure if she is still there, but they will find somebody that can explain it. You have not posted just what method yo...
