    Chiang Mai
    A tip off received suggests that there are now rear facing speed cameras on the middle ring road R3029 at both ends of the R118 Mee Chok underpass.

    If you know anyone who has been nicked on a bike there please let us know.

    Most, if not all, speed cameras in the North so far appear to be forward facing cameras, so there is no threat to bikes with no front number plate & only a rear number plate.

    Is anyone aware of any other rear facing cameras on the under passes around Chiang Mai?

    I don't know about the one you mentioned but I did get a ticket in the mail from Udon province on Highway2 heading south between Udon and Khon Kaen about a month ago so the cameras are out there. Nice clear color shots of me on the bike and the licence plate. 400Baht so I'm not changing my riding habits!

    Have a close look to the picture.

    Phitsanoluk on R11 heading south to MotoGP.

    Richard Na Ched Yot got caught for 121 KPH in the 90 kph zone on that long flat dead straight boring highway.

    24685.

    From the photo the GPS location appears to be here
    Google Maps

    Approximately Km 261.

    A good idea to avoid that long flat straight boring stretch of road if possible. What a joke 90KPH.

    Who else is going to get a ticket going to MotoGP.

    On R1, coming back from the GTR dinner at Tak, I noticed a gantry with cameras across the north bound lane 20 kms south of Lampang, just before the Kho Kha turn off.
    I noticed it because a car over took me at about 160 kph & sped away in a long straight, but then he suddenly slowed dramatically for a short distance & then accelerated again. It was the location of te cameras where he slowed dramatically & took off again afterwards.
    Dos anyone have any unfortunate ticketing experience here?

    R118 Doi Saket

    Just near the weigh bridge inbound to Doi Saket, it should be near here somewhere Google Maps


    Poor Jurgen said he's been nicked 3 times & this last time by a rear facing camera.
    1554276811005.
    It is the 4-lane highway. But the speed limit is 80 or 90KPH? What the heck.

    Soon the Demerit point system will be in force.
    In the fotos posted above there is a space for them already.
    Days of 400 - 500 baht for ever and ever is over.

    An interesting app

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.highway.traffic

    Thailand Highway Traffic
    - access to more than 100 traffic cameras on the highways
    - latest speed(km/h) and flow(veh/h) of the vehicle
    - real-time speed & flow graph of the last 24 hours
    - traffic congestion level by color
    - search by location, region, or road name
    - view cctv/speed/road
    - Public restroom and drinking water locations
    - Travel time interface
    ** Traffic Data provided by Bureau of Highway Safety, Department of Highways (DOH)**

    You can click on a camera image & it supposed to indicate if it is functioning.

    It covers the whole country - up North & elsewhere, so you can know where the cameras are.
    However it may not be the new speed cameras I fear; but it should be a help to some people.
