The pic in the 'accident' report is one that pees me off. 3 lane highway made into a 4 lane highway giving zero chance of any emergency vehicles to pass. It's not as if they get to their destination any quicker. Just plain stupid.

I've been away this weekend, and whilst in Phitsanulok this morning, I encountered the largest open example of police corruption I've seen. It was all Thai on Thai. A police road check as far as the eye could see - it was a dual carriageway, so a lot of vehicles. As far as I could see, every vehicle was checked, and every one was fined. Thankfully, I was an innocent bystander sitting in a minibus. The driver was fuming, being made to pay for an imaginary crime. The police wanted 500฿, he argued it down to 300฿. Aren't the BIB risking accidents making all road users drive whilst angry?
  • 2 things come to mind, if the fine for this crime was 500฿, who was making up the 200฿ shortfall.
  • Such arguments in a traffic queue should not be allowed to disrupt traffic flow even more, but Thai on Thai, of course they all argued, and of course fines were reduced. The resultant delay in travelling time was suffered by all.
It's so long since I've seriously driven up that way, I'd forgotten the BIB's imagination up there were only 2nd to Bangkok's BIB.

Final thing, how is that payment of 300฿ makes the problem go away, and it was suddenly legal to travel another 7 hours? Surely, our vehicle should have been impounded until the problem had been rectified. Of course, that would most likely have meant waiting for the officer concerned to visit a psychiatric clinic.
At least it’s being openly admitted in the press, but I doubt anything will change any time soon!!
