Chayapol’s remarks followed widespread criticism of the department’s reported plan to purchase 849 handheld speed detectors at the price of Bt675,000 each, for a total of Bt573 million. Critics have said the quoted cost for the speed guns was overpriced. Chayapol said it was a median price quoted by sales representatives based on the department’s specifications for the detectors. Chayapol said the detectors were necessary for officials to effectively enforce the law against speeders and inculcate traffic discipline. The department plan was in response to requests from organisations running campaigns to reduce road accidents, he said.

He tightened his defence and attacked when opportunities open ajar as the Malaysian rival gave in to his nerves and made errors. After losing the first game point, Kunlavut finally leveled the tie as Leong sprayed a shot long.
