National Thai police chief orders investigation into how traffic cops are “rewarded”

The head of the police committee looking into changes in traffic regulations has revealed that he has been ordered to set up a committee to review how officers are rewarded for issuing traffic tickets.

The order comes from the top – National Chief General Chakthip Chaijinda who said he is following government orders.

Maj-Gen Ekkarak Limsangkat told Daily News that there is a lot of confusion among the public at the moment in the way policemen are financially rewarded for their efforts.

This needs to be clarified and possibly changed.

A committee will look into all these matters as well as the procedural responsibilities of the traffic police.

Daily News said that the ever increasing carnage on the Thai roads has prompted the Thai public to increasingly ask what is the role of the Thai traffic police.

The suggestion in the media was veiled but quite apparent – the police should do more to help lower the number of deaths on the road and less activity that simply lines their own pockets.
