    On our recent trip to Thailand there seemed to be an awful lot of Police doing vehicle checks.Every day we saw at least one road check and one day I saw four in different locations.Even saw a Bangkok red bus pulled up and the policeman writing out a ticket.Don't know if he was booking the driver or there was a problem with the bus.Anyone else noticed any difference?Perhaps it's just getting close to Xmas he he.

    We were travelling back from Pattaya with the Son-in-Law and we got pulled up.The cop walked around the car and could'nt really find anything wrong-car's 3 years old and hasn't been used in the last year or so.So what did he find wrong?-the front number plate was'nt quite straight.Cost 100baht on the spot or 200baht if he did the paper work.Handed over the 100baht and I think[not really sure]that he gave him a receipt.First time I've ever been in a vehicle that's been checked.
