Patong – A container truck failed to ascend Patong Hill this morning before the Patong Traffic Police gave assistance.

 

The Patong Traffic Police was called at about 11:00 A.M. today (May 25th). A green container truck was unable to go up Patong Hill due to heavy weight and a reportedly wet road.

2,000 baht roadside tip to help lighten the load?

That picture does not look like a container truck! On a container truck the container is easily removed from the trailer chassis, can't see that possibility here.

Perfect example why so many deaths on Thai roads.

Is the truck overloaded or tyres worn or both.

 

The police applying Lime to the wheels allows the truck to climb the hill so the truck driver can do it all again tomorrow or worse have a serious accident because of the poor trucks condition. 

 

It saddens me that the police prefer to move on these unroadworthy, dangerous vehicles, they should impound them.

 

Here we go, another overloaded truck the cops can help up.
