Police checkpoints: activist gets result and police go home with their cones

A Thai activist who is determined to stop police setting up illegal road blocks to fleece motorists has got more good results.

checkpointsKriangkrai Thai-orn arrived at a checkpoint in Korat on Sunday and immediately went live on Facebook where he was seen by 100,000 followers.

The checkpoint had been set up on the road without the permission of the Highways Authority, reports Manager Online.

Kriangkrai cited the law to officers who he said must have permission according to article 38 of the statute book. Police had to concede that the permission they obtained had not come from high enough up the chain of command.

So they gathered up their cones and went home with their tails between their legs.

Kriangkrai then moved onto another checkpoint and got the same result.

While some checkpoints in Thailand have the backing of the law, others are just opportunistic designed to fleece motorists of their cash illegally.
