Junta eyeing street racers

The National Council for Peace and Order is set to tackle street racing by young motorcyclists as its next target for the restoration of social order.

At a police press conference Thursday, senior military legal officer Lt-Colonel Burin Thongprabhai said the Army was ready to assist police in relevant operations including setting up roadblocks and running orientation courses for young offenders.

He said most offenders undergoing the seven-day boot camp stopped street racing and the few who did could be easily tracked.

Once they were, they would be returned to the camp for an extended stay.
