‘Big Joke’, the Assistant Commissioner of Police Surachet Hakpal, yesterday (August 15th) inspected the ‘Smart Safety Zone’ in Phuket Old Town area under the responsibility of the Phuket City Police.
He also inspected road repairs in Phuket’s Old Town. ‘Big Joke’ is worried that there are not enough barriers for motorists. The construction contractor has been informed to increase the number of barriers to ensure road safety.
Some crosswalks in Phuket’s Old Town have faded colors as well. Big Joke has ordered the Phuket City Police Chief and traffic police to make sure that crosswalks are repainted.
Big Joke said to local Thai media, “Smart Safety Zones are special zones which need to have special care. We have promised people that we will do our best. In the future, Smart Safety Zones will be extended to other areas too.”
“The Smart Safety Zone project is not about only more CCTV camera installations but also includes full cooperation from the government and private sectors for people’s benefit.” Big Joke concluded.
