Hua Hin Municipal Officers & Police to Tackle Traffic Problem

Executives of Hua Hin Muncipality are joining force with Superintendent of Hua Hin Police Office, traffic police and Municipal officers to re-organize and resystemize the traffic in Hua Hin to facilitate the upcoming high season when many tourists are flocking in the city center. According to the Hua Hin Mayor Mr. Nopporn Wutthikul, the Hua Hin Municipality is closely working with the Superintendent of Hua Hin Police Office Col.

Damrongsak Thongngamtrakul to solve problems on traffic system in Hua Hin city. This activity, carried out by 22 Municipal officers along with the Hua Hin traffic police, is taking place in front of and behind Chat Chai fresh market as well as on the Phetchakasem Road. To successfully do so, the Municipal officers had to learn basic rules on traffic signs, hand signals, whistle blowing and first aid.

Empowerment of various authorities to deal with traffic problems in Hua Hin is an idea of Hua Hin Mayor, Municipal executives and Hua Hin District Chief because of inadequate number of traffic police.

Although there are many Municipal officers, they do not have knowledge on legal regulations and traffic rules. As a result, the traffic police will train Municipal officers before they go to work. At present, the result is somewhat impressive and this activity will go on until the next high season. Col. Damrongsak said that Hua Hin had a lot of people and visitors, especially during public holidays and weekends when many cars could be seen on the main road.

Traffic congestion and violation against traffic rules are so overwhelming that the authorities have to conduct ‘integrated’ work with Hua Hin Municipality and its officers.

The first thing Municipal officers need to know is basic rules, such as how to control the number of cars parked in some areas of the city, how to transfer cars from congested areas, how to block the road for upcoming processions and how to calm down and control chaotic situations before the traffic police come to the scene, added Col.

Damrongsak, admitting that, in the past, authorities worked separately, thus resulting in unsuccessful problem-solving. The cooperative and integrated work that is being carried out at the moment will hopefully solve the traffic problem in Hua Hin city to some extent.
