PHUKET: -- More than 500 helmets were given away on Bang la Rd on Saturday evening (April 15) as part of Phuket Bike Week with Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong and leading police officers on the island joined the campaign to save lives.


Joining Gov Norraphat at the event, which got underway at 6pm, were Phuket Region 8 Police Chief Lt Gen Tesa Siriwato, Patong Police Chief Col Chaiwat Uikam, officers from the Royal Thai Naval Third Area and Kathu District Chief Sayan Chanachaiwong.


“The Seven Days of Danger records show that most people fined during the campaign are fined for not wearing helmets. Motorbike users must be aware of wearing helmets for safety. This not just to avoid being caught by the police, but for lives and their families.” Governor Norraphat said.


“For Region 8: ‘Every day, Every age – Safety 100% helmet’,” added Gen Tesa.

And these helmets are DOT or equivalant approved and will save lives.....

or will just prevent you from being fined, ice cream buckets are cheaper, and when you see the police pulling out of Chalong police ststion wearing nothing but their cap, everyone will take notice...
