Kicking cop just doing his job as taxi driver faces summons

A Pattaya traffic cop who was caught on film kicking out at a taxi says he was just doing his job and was trying to stop being hit by the cab fleeing the scene.

 

The taxi was parked in a red and white stripe area on Saturday as Pol Lt Wasathorn Iam-samang moved in to investigate.

 

The driver was from Bangkok and had no licence - all he had was a ticket from the capital to show that he had been stopped for not having a permit to drive.

Pol Lt Wasathorn told Daily News that the driver was speaking like a gangster. He had come down from Bangkok to deliver a passenger and was waiting to go back.

 

He said that the driver refused to get out then revved and moved off - the kick occurred in an attempt to get out of the way.

 

The police contacted the driver who has said Pattaya is too far to go and pay a fine.

 

So now they have issued a summons on three charges - illegal parking, dangerous parking and not having a licence.

 

If he fails to appear he faces arrest.

 

Station chief Pol Col Apichai Krobpetch has investigated and appears satisfied that his lieutenant was acting lawfully.

These stories are all just merging into one narrative, lots of yapping and little or no action or consequences to the perpetrators actually happening
Bit of a broken record (system) now.....

Let me see if I get this right.

 

Taxi driver gets a ticket in Bangkok because he has no taxi driver permit.

 

He then get caught again in Pattaya in that same taxi and  obviously still without a permit, or even any other identification papers.

 

And he is allowed to leave again?

 

What can be wrong here.

 

Where I come from he would not have kicked, but probably shot, when attempting to flee from arrest

but but but TIT.......no logic applied here sadly :blink:

A ticket is valid for 24 hours. It doesnt say if he just got that from bkk or not.. If he just got it they cant give him another one before after the timestamp on the ticket.

That ridiculous 24 hour law is excusable if he has a tail light out or similar, but when hes not allowed to drive in the first place !
