Recommended Posts

the admissibility of the footage is unsure because the cop used a potato to record the event. can anybody make out the license plate on the truck? or any vehicle's plates for that matter?

If they got just a small percentage of their 310,000 lazy ass Cops out on the roads in unmarked cars they would soon be raking in enough money to install all the equipment needed to bring an end to much of the bad driving we see on a daily basis.

 

This particular recording is pussy compared to many of the Trucks i have followed even in the last few months !

 

Exactly, this is normal truck driving, I give them a wide berth, they are full of Red Bull , chain smoke and talk on their cell phones while overtaking.

I rode with one from BK to Hua Hin to deliver my container of furniture, the cab was full of empty Red Bull bottles the driver was reckless, I ended up phoning my wife to talk to him to slow the maniac down , he was tailgating trucks in front overtaking at 120 k then being overtaken by the truck he overtook, they play this game.

 

Where are the log books promised within 30 days???????

"The footage of the Chiang Mai truck shocked many people" - I truly doubt it shocked anyone.

Next it will be "Dash cams banned as they don't show Thailand in a positive manner"

Because it does not show Thailand in a positive manner Common

Well well well, half the dopey people in charge do not even understand what a dash cam is. Its way past the time they get up to speed or retire.

Where I come from, an HGV license requires a lot of training and cash.... truck drivers take pride in their driving. Time to change the system here; proper training at a cost that will make the drivers think twice about doing something that'll cause their license to be revoked. Same goes for the coach drivers.

What I see here, is just another day on the roads of Thailand. The only difference being that we know that the nerd hogging the outer lane is a police officer.

 

If the police don't know the basic rules of driving in this country, what hope is there for the rest of the driving population?

You are right they dont know the rules I was driving through centre of Ubon ratchathani during Songhran People in the back of pick-ups everywhere  throwing water Cops were there to causing traffic Chaos They were sending cars here there everywhere Complete loss of control Then one of them was changing the lights manually He forgot to change the lights back from red Cars stacked right back up the road because this cop forgot to change the lights to green It was like sending a bunch of school kids to control the traffic and telling them they could be police men for a day

BANGKOK: -- A dash-cam video that caught a Chiang Mai truck weaving recklessly across a road has prompted the chief of highway police to discuss the admissibility of such footage for prosecution.

Hmm One would have thought that was a slam dunk using it for evidence. Watch out for the overkill part all vehicles must have dash cams. Yes I know its a good idea but personal preference is the clincher. Lets leave us with the right to make some decisions on our own.

He said there would not be much point in having it if it could not be used to nail negligent drivers.

Another earth shattering statement.

Dash cam they are ok I got one and use it when am back driving  highway truck it is to cover my butt in case of an accident because the big truck is always guilty so when there is evidence off that cam it could be used.

Here it is a joke cam are for movies like crash movies on U- Tube it make a lot of sense so drive the jungle  way and be like them enjoy the bad driving freedom.

I have to remember now next week back to law and orders in my country. LOL,
