2,500 cars wheel-clamped in one day

Traffic police wheel-clamped up to 2,500 illegally parked vehicles on Tuesday in their drive to enforce traffic rules and relieve congestion on Bangkok streets.

Senior police adviser Pol Gen Wuthi Liptapanlop said Tuesday was the fourth day of the serious law enforcement campaign.

On Tuesday alone, up to 2,500 vehicles were wheel-clamped at no-parking zones in the capital.  Traffic police at each police station in Bangkok clamped the wheels of 30-50 illegally parked vehicles.

He  was satisfied with the numbers. The campaign had significantly improved traffic flow in Bangkok. Street hawkers were also being discouraged from parking their carts on streets in the way that would obstruct moving vehicles.

Pol Gen Wuthi said he planned to expand the campaign nationwide.
