Jomtien Police Checkpoints


B-Man

Recommended Posts

I was stopped last night about 9 PM on the corner of Jomtien 2nd rd and soi Wat Boon. It was no problem as i hadn't been drinking but the cop also looked under my seat and dash compartment on the pcx. He told me lots of drunk driving and yaba arrests in Jomtien as well as Pattaya now and have police too much.

 

I knew about the check point on Theppraya and Pratumnak rd as well as a couple of spots between Jomtien 2nd rd where it goes up to Sukhumvit and the police station. This was the first time i saw that one.

Since the day before NYE, I havent seen the check point at theppraya pratumnak,

 

Two nighs ago, as I was passing the Honuman, on the way to the market, the traffic was stopped as far as I could see and not moving,  I worked my around to a U turn, and went threpprasit soi 17.    Not sure if that was a stop or a checkpoint, but it sure was fucked up.   Looked like a bus was jammed on a uturn or stopped halfway through, so that might be what was up

Just to let everyone know, there's a law on the books in Thailand that also prohibits drinking as a passenger in any vehicle, public or private. I wasn't aware of the law until two weeks ago. Friends on three baht buses that were on their way back from the PH3 Monday hash run got nicked for drinking on the baht buses. These were private hire buses and were pulled over on Hwy 7. They settled on the side of the hwy for 2,000B/bus. Can't see them enforcing this within Pattaya, but out on the highways the BIB will probably see this as a good way to enrich themselves.

 

Here's an article I found that gives a summary of the law.

 

Now Illegal to Drink Beer in Vehicles in Thailand

 

August 28, 2012
By Richard Barrow

 

Thailand has one of the worst road fatality rates in the world with at least 30 dead each day. The number often doubles during the long holidays when people are out celebrating. Thailand already has strict licensing laws that limit the times you can buy alcohol from convenience stores. The laws for closing times at pubs and bars are not as strict as many seem to get away with being open all night. On the surface it seems silly to bring in new laws when old ones are not being enforced. But, if anything can be done to stop drink driving then I am all for it.

The latest law, which came into play on 8th August, prohibits the drinking of alcohol in any kind of vehicle. This doesn’t matter if its your private car or a public bus or whether you are the driver or the passenger. No-one is allowed to drink alcohol in a vehicle, even if its parked by the side of the road. The exception is if its in front of your house. If caught you could face up to 6 months in prison and/or a 60,000 Baht fine. At the weekend we bought some beer at the end of a really exhausting cycle ride then suddenly remembered it would be illegal for us to open the cans in the back of the van.

It may seem strange that passengers are also included in this ban. But, if you think about it, it does make sense. I have seen with my own eyes during the Songkran festivities people in the back of pick-up trucks drinking beer and then passing the bottle to the driver. If other people are drinking then I guess the temptation is too much for the driver. Another ban we have at the moment is the sale of alcohol at convenience stores at gas stations. This one seems to be working. But, whether they can enforce the ban on drinking in vehicles is another matter. Songkran will be the biggest test.

Yes you can be arrested and taken to the monkey house. i know a few that have been in the tank. Many check points and police out now, they can set up where you would least expect it.

  • 4 weeks later...

came back from the movies last night, and they stopped me on third road, looked in my closed window, guess seeing I am a farang and on my way, right away.    I turned on to soi 17 third road, knowing many said there were roadblocks, but I figured with the one right on third they would have the night off, silly me, should have gone down to threpraya and turned left, lazy.    They stopped me, whole lotta police, with cars behind me, no where to turn and they said stop now.  The cop came to my window and only spoke thai, maybe becasue I said hello in Thai.   First thing is where have you been? Movies.  Do you have a gun.  No.  Then he looked at the two girls with me, on sitting on the others lap since I have a two seater, and told them to get out.  Thought he was gonna get me for no seat belt.  Took the girls to the side, and checked IDS, lucky for me 20 and 21.  While they were doing that one guy reached in to open my glove compartment, had trouble and motioned for me to do it.  While he looked the other guy asked if they were my girlfriends and I said only friends.  Girls came back and they smiled and said go.  No ID check for me, no check in the trunk or middle glove box.

Were you drinking?

I was on my way home on Saturday night & there was about 10 of the cunts stopping near Lion bar,

Then I passed a checkpoint on Theposit, about 15 of them, only stopping traffic coming from Suk,

no, I rarely drink, and they didn't try to check.   Went to dinner and the movies, and showed the cop the tickets.  They still wanted to check the girls and my glove box.  That was it
