Driving slowly in high-speed lane to soon become a punishable offence

Again... another response which misses the point... 

 

When on the highway / express way the left most lane is the driving lane... and other lane is an over taking lane.... enforce that and there will be fewer express way accidents with people under and over taking middle lane traffic.

 

There is a base logic in enforcing a minimum speed which should be set to maintain traffic flow and reduce 'passing speeds'.

 

But again... Its just a rule and as kannot wrote... who cares in the slightest about rules and regulations here..  the penalties are so minimal no one bats an eyelid.

 

 

 

On a recent expressway journey I exceeded the speed limit, I knew I was exceeding the speed limit (the expressway was very quiet)... I didn't care that I was exceeded the speed limit because the fines are so small, I also knew there was a likelihood I'd get caught by the camera's (I did !). My Road Taxi is due up soon, I'll see if I am forced to pay the 500 baht fine or not !!!... 

 

Until the fines are significant, the laws won't matter. 

the  worst  point  is  your  speeding  was  in  no  way  dangerous,  but  rules  are   rules

Agreed... and if the fine was 5000 baht instead of 500 baht I would not have exceeded the speed limit...

What will be classed as slow. 10, 20,30, 40, or 50 over speed limit?

 

Exactly. Clueless at the top, clueless at the bottom.
