In the last 7 days i have been stopped at 16 different checkpoints and been asked for license ,insurance etc ...all in order and Its not funny anymore also stopped today on way from rayong on the 331, given a ticket for illegal U turn ?????total bullshit of course , its a strait road ,,,,,,,they took my license and sent me off on a 70km run to pay the fine took 4 hours to process and when i got back to the checkpoint they had lost my license !!!!! messed up my whole day talking to friends and neighbours it seems the police around here have become very pro active in Chonburi and Rayong due to some Government initiative there are Bangkok compliance ''cops'' taking photos and videos and supervising the locals oh and they are not taking any Tea money,you have to pay the fines properly at a police station .people tell me this over the top policing has been going on now for over 2 months , fortunately i have been overseas much of this yearand I am leaving tommorow again thank god ...hope they get back to normal soon or i wont want to come home . almost as bad here now as UK .
