Enraged wife crashes car into Mercedes carrying husband and his mistressBy The Nation 

BANGKOK: — In a scene straight out of a television drama, a woman driving a brand-new Toyota Fortuner chased a Mercedes Benz carrying her husband and his mistress to confront them and ended up crashing into four vehicles in Pathum Thani’s Thanyaburi district, causing six slight injuries on Saturday afternoon.

The pile-up occurred at 4.30pm on the Rangsit-Nakhon Nayok Road in Tambon Bung Yitow, causing a severe four-kilomretre-long traffic jam before the scene was cleared.

The initial police probe found that the woman had traced her husband using GPS, caught up with his white Mercedes Benz at Sawai Pracharat Road and then decided to crash her vehicle into his to stop him from getting way.

The crash also caused damaged three other passing cars.

A HISTORIC MOVE, POLICE START ENFORCING ZEBRA CROSSINGS

BANGKOK — Drivers in Bangkok are now legally required to stop for pedestrians at zebra crosswalks following a new campaign launched by police yesterday.

Police announced last week that from 1 September onward, motorists who failed to stop at zebra crossings in Bangkok will face a fine of 500 baht.

Although the current Traffic Act does require drivers to stop at the crosswalks, the law has not been strictly enforced and many pedestrians in the capital city prefer to use the “pedestrian bridges” over roads to avoid risking their lives with the oncoming traffic.

Pol.Maj.Gen. Nipon Charoenpol, deputy commander of Metropolitan Police Bureau, said police will begin monitoring drivers’ behavior around zebra crossings in the financial district of Asoke.

“Drivers who don’t slow down their vehicles when they approach the crossing will be fined no more than 500 baht,” Pol.Maj.Gen. Nipon said yesterday. “Pedestrians who don’t use zebra crossing will also be guilty of violating the Traffic Act … which carries a fine of no more than 200 baht.”

Two jaywalkers were fined yesterday for not using the zebra crossings, said Pol.Col. Pusit Witsetkamin, deputy Traffic Police chief.

Pol.Maj.Gen. Nipon, who has a reputation for personally directing traffic on Bangkok’s busy roads, said the campaign will help improve traffic around the Asoke Intersection.

Police will also take additional measures to ease the notorious traffic in Asoke, such as banning vehicles from cutting the opposite lane and deploying more police officers to oversee the traffic, added Pol.Maj.Gen. Nipon.

Another foreign couple wanted for committing sex acts in public

SAMUI:– Police are searching for an unidentified foreign couple who were seen ‘getting intimate’ at the side of the road at Nathorn Beach in Samui this morning.

A video of the incident, about a minute and 45 seconds long, was posted on a Facebook page titled ‘Ruam Pon Khon Mui’.

The couple were seemingly unconcerned about making a spectacle, as people drove by and pedestrians looked on.

The video and pictures have been widely shared and criticized on social media, with some calling for harsher punishments than the 500-baht fine doled out to the Russian couple charged in Phuket yesterday for “conducting an indecent act in public”

Picture: Sanook

SONGKHLA: — Two six year old twins with Thai and Italian parents married in a ceremony in Songkhla in the south of Thailand yesterday.

Twins often “marry” according to local beliefs that the practice will bring good luck to both them and the family ensuring they will always be together and have a long and happy life, reported Sanook.

Tying the knot yesterday were groom Peno Vincent Curotto, the younger of the two six year olds, and his sister the bride Cara Francis.

Parents Joseph Curotto from Italy and mother Pornsri Wijitsopha joined many guests at the wedding that had all the trappings of a real marriage complete with dowry.

Little Cara had to attend the ceremony in a cast after injuring her left arm in an accident three days before, but she did the best she could, reported Sanook.

Speeding fines in Thailand – go faster pay less!

Picture: Sanook

PRAE: — Thais online have been questioning the consistency of speeding fines after several people posted fines that seemed to indicate the faster you go the less you pay.

Two fines in the same area of Prae province posted by “Liew Piya” showed an 800 baht ticket for going 115 kilometers an hour and one showing a payment of just 500 baht for going 121 kmph.

Another posted by Yuttana Tharamaha seemed to only confirm the discrepancy.

But when PPTV contacted cops in Prae it was all explained – one of the Prae tickets was before Songkran and the other was after the holidays.

Apparently there was a safe driving campaign on before the holidays and the fines were higher then. Reporters were told to look at the dates at the bottom for confirmation.

Besides, said the cops there is “discretion” from one district to another in how much a speeding motorist has to pay.
