Thai Traffic Police and Not at Sakon Nakhon, Rajabhat University Morning Rush Hour

Traffic in most Isaan cities and towns of any size gets quite heavy during the  0730 to 0930 and 1500 to 1800 hours most weekdays. People going and leaving work on roads and lanes not sufficient to modern traffic levels make bottlenecks common. Poor road marking and lack of safety infrastructure adds to the problem as well as the fact that most people are not educated in the rules of the road and often choose to ignore them.
To me the most heinous offender is the Royal Thai Police Farce. Over the years I have photographed them breaking the laws they are tasked to uphold and ignoring them being broken. They are there to ensure the public safety. From ensuring that roads are correctly marked and in good repair. Of course they do not do the repair, but are responsible to report infractions.

Registering with the Police, Sakon Nakhon, Thailand

Click on the Title to read the whole story
I was in Immgration in Sakon Nakhon a couple weeks ago getting some information prior to getting my new visa in March. I got my first Retirement Visa back in 2005 and have been renewing it in Nong Khai since 2010 as I had a house book in that province even tough I lived most of the last 5 years in Khon Kaen. Due to a death earlier this year I no longer have any ties to Nong Khai and am now in Sakon Nakhon. My passport runs out in October of 2013, hence will be inadequate for a renewed visa in March. So I stopped in the local Immigration Office to get a list of documents needed, discuss passport options as well as moving visa stamp to the new passport if necessary.Rememberevery Immigration Office is different and might change the rules any time. While there the Officer said I should also register with the Police since I am now living in Sakon Nakhon.
