Super cars put spotlight on the DSI

- +

This is a test for the DSI, which has been quite a disappointment ...Welcome to Si Sa Ket, home of Phra Viharn National Park and ... super cars. The Northeast province is a fragile part of the border with Cambodia because of the land dispute around Preah Vihear temple. But in fact it has a hidden asset that few knew about until May 29. Si Sa Ket, the province with a sleepy provincial town, is a haven for luxury car owners. 

In the past three years, the province has registered 23 mega-expensive luxury cars. Its Land Transport office seems to have something very special that lures the owners of those cars from Bangkok, that makes them willing to pay for the cost of transporting them some 500 kilometres to Si Sa Ket to have them licensed there _ even though they could quite easily do it right in the capital or closer provinces.

Another six vehicles were destined for registration there before a blaze on a car transporter badly damaged four vehicles in Pak Chong district of Nakhon Ratchasima, roughly half way to Si Sa Ket where they were headed.
