How long before there is a bad accident?



(Re: “Police volunteers raise Jomtien profile during peak period,” Jan. 27) Perhaps the good volunteers would like to visit another night, not in uniform, without telling anyone and observe the crazy fireworks going off on the beach from 6-7 p.m. until 3- 4 a.m. every night.

These fireworks are horrendous and a danger to all. Last night I observed a Thai man lighting a huge firework in a tube with a 12 month baby under his arm. Apart from disturbing everyone’s sleep I wonder of the effect on the poor local soi dogs.

I notice (but perhaps the volunteers did not) that huge explosions go off right outside the Dong Tan Police station. How long before there is a bad accident like that one at Suphan Buri last week?
