    Of course Governor it is. And that won't change until your police takes their hands out of the pockets of the law-breakers and start doing their jobs! Stop your police from taking tea money on fictitious charges from drivers and put them to work in traffic. At every street and road crossing they can catch law breakers at every redlight sequence. And vehicles driving on the wrong side of the road. And start dealing with the thugs on the tuktuks before they have scared all tourists away! They are a disgrace to Thailand and it is a disgrace to Phuket that they are allowed (not least by your police) to continue their scams and crimes!
