PHUKET CITY: In a bid to improve road safety, the Phuket Community Foundation (PCF) is launching a project to replace substandard taillights on motorcycles from November 8 to 10.

The project will provide 1,200 tail lights and brake lights for a wide range of the most common small-engine scooters and motorcycles made by Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki.

The taillights will be given out and installed free of charge from 9 am until 3 pm in front of Surakul Stadium on Wichit Songkhram Rd.

On the first day of the project, traffic police will set up a checkpoint between 9 am and 12 pm and ask drivers with taillights in need of replacement to use the free service.

At other times during the three days, drivers will be able to get their taillights replaced at a tent set up on Wichit Songkhram Rd.

Students from Phuket Technology College have been called upon to assist with replacing the taillights.

Phuket City Traffic Inspector Pol Lt Col Teerawat Leamsuwan said in a press release, “In Phuket, we must work to decrease the number of road accidents and this project is a good way to help achieve that.”
