Police have a bright idea! Check for criminals at road traffic stops | News by Samui TimesWhy not check people stopped at traffic checkpoints to aid investigators working on serious crime?

Pol Col Kitti Ariyanon’s bright idea – described as a “ping” moment in the somewhat facetious Daily News headline – would involve accessing a database of stolen vehicles, outstanding crimes and warrants at traffic stops.

The only problem is that at the moment there is no way they can do that.

Pol Col Kitti says more work needs to be done to make the idea a reality.

Traffic stops are often the first point of contact with the criminal and the police so it makes sense, he said yesterday.

Now work needs to be done on the database and connections within the force to make it all work.

This will take time said Kitti.

Thaivisa thinks this may be a time to call Big Joke to get some action.
