A enormous task for Officials, just make safe and everything perfect what on Phuket normally is not safe and not perfect. After that perfect day they all get another decoration. I promise.   :-)

Phuket Highway Police? Is that the organisation with Highway patrol cars you only see when VIP's on Phuket needs to be raced to 4 star hotels for lunch or other matters? Driving with  noise and flashing lights, exceeding speed limits, almost push you of the road while you drive decent? You never see them patrolling the Phuket roads and stop traffic violators. Have no traffic fine ticket books?...
