The CCTV footage shows the truck releasing a large amount of concrete on a dangerous section of the busy road at 1:22pm as it climbed the hill around a tight bend.

The incident created a dangerous hazard for road users on what is one of Phuket’s most accident-prone roads.

Kathu Police tracked down the culprit through the company that owns the truck – Saengtong Transport Southern.

They have refused to disclose the driver’s name and revealed only that he is a 31-year-old man from Satun.

Police confirmed that he has been fined B10,000 in favour of Kathu Municipality who were left to clear the concrete from the road.

How lucky the vehicle's tag was visible- many are not. The skill and ethos of many drivers is what  is most worrying to me. Police remain ineffective.

This its a total normal day in Phuket  ohh sorry and Thailand.

Read the article. They haven't refused because Police have charged the driver.  His name was not disclosed to the media.

How exactly does one "refuse to name the driver" to the police?
