Starting March 1, applicants for a driving license will be required to produce a new form of medical certificate from qualified doctor certifying that he/she is free from five diseases namely elephantiasis, tuberculosis, alcoholism, leprosy and drugs addiction.

 

On top of that, Land Transport Department director-general Sanit Promwong said applicants for a driving license must fill in his/her medical record, record of accidents and surgeries and treatment in hospitals.

 

Also, he said the doctors who issued the certificates to the applicants must certify that the applicants are not disabled to the extent that they cannot perform their duties; do not suffer from mental illness or being mentally disabled or showing symptoms of drug abuse or chronic alcoholism and do not have symptoms of leprosy which are communicable and symptoms of tuberculosis in dangerous stage.

elephantiasis

 

well that one is easy - you can't get your shorts on above your knees 

 

How about full disclosure as to the level of education of people coming up with these stellar ideas

A bit of additional paperwork plus the required shuffling from one desk to another. Yes that should solve the road toll problem.

surgeries and treatment in hospitals.

intrusive and impractical; have had many  in many different hospitals in different cities;

their form wouldnt be big enough to list all of them even if by some miracle i could remember them all; a stupid , foolish idea

Another form and more payment to some official who can 'help' with its provision. Who is going to know just what ailments I might be suffering from without a very extensive and costly check-up. Only when drivers are insured and not vehicles will some sense be seen.

How about a new form of policeman that ventures out after dark and into traffic?

You're living in a dream land. Wake up now! You know the police are scared of the dark.

 

The two separate occasions my family have called them out during the night regarding suspected thieves on a farm, the police did every they could to avoid it. That's once they eventually answered the 191 number.

 

My family said that it wasn't only because they're too lazy, but they also fear about being attacked in the dark in villages, by the large numbers that hate them.

Its not a new idea, the above has been directly ripped from the medical form you need to renew a work permit.

 

No hassle though as a local clinic doctor can sign this, nope doesnt need to be a hospital full blown check up job ...so still 50 baht or thereabouts.

Oh right, that's where I've seen it before.

Yes, 50 Baht if you're lucky or 200 Baht if you're not.

Ah yes! The shuffling from one desk to another - ah that's my favourite part of the day. And then having to queue up again to see the nincompoop at the next desk. Oh the joy of it all!
