Police extort money from foreigner for bogus reason.

0



It is the most dangerous time of the year on the roads, the deadly week. Instead of applying the law and going after the potentially dangerous people, police continue harassing foreigners and extort their money. It happened to me today. Here is the story. I was fined 1000 baht for passing at a red light while I was actually parked on the sideway and didn’t passed the red light at all! The police chased me and ordered me to stop in the middle of the fast line.
(note that this police officer does not have an helmet on, is driving a non registered bike, and quickly put his glasses when he sees that I am filming).

เป็นช่วงเวลาที่อันตรายที่สุดของปีบนท้องถนนสัปดาห์แห่งความตาย แทนที่จะใช้กฎหมายและไล่ตามคนที่อาจเป็นอันตรายเจ้าหน้าที่ตำรวจยังคงคุกคามคนต่างชาติและรีดไถเงินของพวกเขา มันเกิดขึ้นกับฉันในวันนี้ นี่คือเรื่องราว.ฉันถูกปรับ 1000 บาทสำหรับการส่งผ่านไปที่แสงสีแดงในขณะที่ฉันจอดอยู่บนทางเท้าและไม่ผ่านแสงสีแดงเลย!
(โปรดทราบว่าเจ้าหน้าที่ตำรวจคนนี้ไม่มีหมวกนิรภัยกำลังขับรถลงทะเบียนจักรยานและรีบใส่แว่นตาเมื่อเห็นว่ากำลังถ่ายทำ)

Tomorrow I wil go pay the fine and take picture. Only foreigners waiting in the queue. Thai are giving 100 baht in the pocket of the police officer when they are arrested. But they won’t let you foreigner deal that because too many of us complained about the corruption in the social medias, so now we pay the price, but Thai deal under the table.

I don’t disagree with you about the whole targeting Farang issue….and 1000 is unreasonable…a few 100 is OK…..but it will always be that way….they don’t care if we are tourists or not…we aren’t thai and we can pay the fines. It sucks but it is just how it is…and it is better than being in a western country with a points system where you get penalized 2kms over the speed limit and $200. Give me a 1000 baht any day.

I was fined for a left turn that I didn’t make. I was parked at the intersection on a motorbike. My mistake was not driving away when I saw the policeman approaching.

Complain as much as you like but you’re not allowed to turn left on a red light unless there’s a sign that allows you to. Thais not being fined is rather irrelevant (unless they start honking behind you).

No problem like this in buriram. The police treat farangs like celebrities. Riding back from pattaya last month a checkpoint near the cambodian border I was told to pull out of the queue and carry on without even a licence check.
