PHUKET TOWN: Police monitoring traffic congestion at the intersection of Thepkrassatri Rd and Thung Kha Rd can now be a great deal more comfortable, thanks to a new air-conditioned police box. The box is a gift to the town from Bangkok-based Sangmit Electric Co, who manufacture it. It was presented to the mayor of Phuket Municipality, Phumisak Hongyok, on Friday. Khun Nawara Rudeepeepatanapon, spokesperson for the company, expressed the hope that the new box (which is still, like the old boxes, shaped like a policeman’s helmet) would [somehow] help clear up congestion at the intersection, especially during rush hour. A traffic police spokesman said the force hopes more private companies will follow Sangmit Electric’s example and donate more of the 110,000-baht boxes.
