Pattaya testing speed-trap cameras

Pattaya testing speed-trap cameras

image.png

PATTAYA:--Pattaya has begun testing speed-trap cameras on city streets.

 

Two cameras on North Road, on opposite sides near the intersection with Phettrakul Road, are now operational. The cameras automatically snap photos of the license plates of vehicles that run the red light or speed through the intersection.

 

Police said the cameras could also be of use in capturing license plates of vehicles used in crimes.

If successful, the cameras could be installed elsewhere around the city.

Just out of interest, can anyone tell me what the speed limit is on these 2 roads (Thappraya and Pattaya Neua)? Also, the speed limit on Sukhumvit.

great idea , now all you gotta do is get all the vehicles registered. 

And make sure the plates are not fake, haven't updated their address like 20 years ago, and most of all, to get the drivers to give a damn and pay the fines.. good luck guys, it looks like someone got a good deal on a speed cameras and decided to buy them and make a nice commission on top...

It is probably a forlorn hope that these cameras are accurate. On Highway 2 between Muak Lek and Saraburi there are multiple sets of cameras linked to signs that display your speed, they often display ridiculous figure erring by anything up to 20 kph. I suspect that the problem could be that are 3 or 4 lanes on this road in each direction.

Oh.. and the offenders will pay up. Vehicle registrations are linked to unpaid fines now,

Wow, modern technology being tested in Pattaya :cheesy:

Would have been good enough to ask how they work in other cities where they have been installed long ago. Khon Kaen would be one :biggrin:

Also, the speed limit on Sukhumvit.

Compared to the general rules it would be 90 km/h (56 mph) where the road is physically divided.

Both photos made me laugh but the TV like system seems to be throwing a wobbly.

Now in working order.

many towns in Florida (my former) have thrown out this system. some judges automatically summarily dismiss any tickets resulting from "red light cameras".  Seems the system is basically a money grab for the towns and company that installs, manages, and issues tickets (from the cameras). Seems citizens became irate and made it known.

 

get ticky in mail (or not) and it's on your record, and who do you argue with that it was in error? call the camera into court?
