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.
Everything seems the same to me.

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.
