Looks like he did not take advice from his name. However, he will now get to stay longer for free.

And where was Mr. Anutin?

Oh yes he was at Khao San road at 11:30 in his casual dress.... not when the drunks are being kicked out at 04:00

all the people who were supporting this idea of all night bars ... it's not too late to admit you were wrong.

 

 

So you are using one accident to justify not having 4am closing?

 

What about all the deaths every day on Thai roads through drink-driving and driving at speed? 

 

There has been no 4am closing the last 20/30 years, but the accident and crime figures are appalling.

 

If the Police followed and used the existing laws, we might reduce drink-driving, driving at speed and driving through the influence of drugs.

 

However, they won't, they never do.
