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.
