Thai road safety: Green light given for police to spend half a billion baht on radar guns

Speeding motorists better watch out – Thailand is spending more than half a billion baht to equip its police with hand held radar guns.

A ministry of the interior budgetary committee has given approval for 849 of the devices to be bought at a cost of 675,000 baht each.

That makes a total bill of 573 million baht, reported Voice TV yesterday.

The bidding process for the radar guns was mired in corruption allegations and previous requests for more devices have been revised now that the true price for each one has been ascertained.

The government said that the radar guns were to help with road safety and would prevent accidents.
