A reward of Bt50,000 is being offered in exchange for reports on motorbike racers in a bid to rid the city of this nuisance.

Assistant national police chief Pol Lt-General Damrongsak Kittiprapat said police swooped on motorbike racers who came out once lockdown measures were lifted on June 20.

So far, 109 of them have been arrested, 11,743 motorcycles and 208 cars seized.

Also, in a bid to tackle the problem at its root, police have also arrested 3,088 owners of garages that modify motorbikes and 98 social-media influencers.

Penalties include a fine of between Bt1,000 and Bt2,000 as well as 15 days behind bars.

Those wishing to report motorbike racers can record a video and send it to the Royal Thai Police’s social-media page or call the 191 and 1599 hotlines.
