Thai Motorists Urged To Fit Dash Cams For Songkran
The head of the anti-drink driving foundation is telling drivers to fit dash cams for the upcoming Songkran festival.
Dr Thaejing Siriphanit has urged Thai motorists to fit the cameras to their vehicles in advance of the holidays.
Explaining the move he said that the cameras helped to put pressure on people through the internet and social media to drive more responsibly.
Footage was uploaded quickly, he said, and the naming and shaming of people could help with improving driving standards.
He also said that the cameras were also excellent as an extra pair of eyes and ears for the understaffed police in resolving accident disputes and in evidence gathering.
With this in mind he said that a fair has been set up in Pathumwan, Bangkok, on April 1st and 2nd where half a dozen leading manufacturers of dash cams from China would be selling reliable products at cheap prices.
