Police in Bangkok have called their campaign to issue stations with fancy cameras to catch motorists breaking the law “a great success”.
Deputy metropolitan chief in charge of traffic Jiraphat Phumijit was giving the stats after the first twenty days of the campaign from February 1st to 20th, Daily News reported.
Jiraphat said that 31,264 tickets had been issued through the post and motorists were going to police stations or using bank transfer to pay the fines.
Some 88 police stations in the capital were given a budget to buy the fancy cameras that would take good pictures.
The top three offences caught by the cameras were as follows:
1. Not observing road signs or road markings 24,619 cases
2. Speeding 2,966 cases
3. Going through red lights 772 cases.
Some 492 people were also caught going the wrong way or ignoring police instructions. There were also a variety of other infractions.
Jiraphat said: “We set no targets for officers to aim for and we are delighted with the start made and hope it will have a benefit in improving driving behavior. It is a great success so far”.
Jiraphat also responded to suggestions from an anti drink driving foundation that all motorists should equip their cars with dash cams. He deemed this a very good idea that will help in many ways such as the gathering of evidence in accidents.
