Phuket speed cameras can't keep up

Phuket Gazette - Drivers in Phuket moving at reckless speeds of over 200km/hr are outpacing the ability of the island's new speed cameras to capture clear images of them.

"In Thalang, the cameras are set to photograph cars travelling in excess of 120km/hr. However, the images of the licenses plates on cars going extremely fast are too blurry to read," Thalang Police Deputy Superintendent Sarayuth Meeboon said.

"The company that installed the cameras is already taking steps to fix the problem."
