Town to get traffic cameras
PHUKET TOWN: In the latest effort to bring some order to Phuket’s traffic chaos, Deputy Prime Minister Chaturon Chaisang, who is responsible for traffic in the Southern provinces, has announced that a 4.15-million-baht video surveillance system will be installed at three Phuket Town intersections. The intersections are the one next to Satree Phuket School, the one next to Wachira Phuket Hospital, and the one next to the Muang District Office. The system, to operate around-the-clock, will be controlled by duty officers. It is scheduled to go into operation in the middle of next month. K. Chaturon issued a stiff warning to police officers who fail to take serious action to uphold traffic laws, saying they would quickly find themselves transferred if they failed to perform their duties.
