Bang Lamung, Chonburi —
Bang Lamung police tested a speed camera on Sukhumvit Road yesterday, June 2nd, 2022, to ensure its functionality and prevent speed-limit violators.
Pol. Maj. Gen. Chakkrit Chantakham led a team of law enforcement, Pattaya officials, and traffic engineers to examine and set up a speed camera at the Rong Mai-keed intersection on Sukhumvit Road inbound to Chonburi around 2:00 P.M. yesterday.
According to Officer Chakkrit, Bang Lamung traffic police cooperated with Pattaya officials to conduct this operation. They aimed to ensure the camera’s functionality and prevent speeding violations, which he said contributed to many traffic accidents in Pattaya, especially at this intersection. Traffic police said they would notify citizens about the location of a new camera prior to its installation.
The speed limit in Bangkok and on municipal roads around the Pattaya area has been set at 80 km/h. Bang Lamung traffic police believed that the camera would encourage drivers’ cautiousness. They also said that two more cameras would be installed at the Rong Mai-keed intersection and Muang Pattaya School 3.
