The police should extort more

From Manager, August 23, 2018
Policeman: Stop extorting just a hundred or two hundred [baht]… For such a major offense, the extortion must be above a thousand!
On a paper on plow: Don’t have a driver license: 10,000 baht fine
Caption: A new tool for people who do farming on the road

[Refers to a new proposal by the Land Transport Department to increase the penalty for driving without a license or are unable to present their license on demand.
The cartoon plays with Thai word ‘ไถ’ which means to plow. This word is also used as slang to mean to extort. The cartoon suggests that the new law will enable the police to ask for larger bribes from drivers rather than the existing 100 or 200 baht.]
