Pay traffic fines or your car will be banned!

Recommended Posts

Why don't they link the un-paid fine to the owner of the vehicle... trace the address & send the local police round to collect it!

From where did you learn such rubbish. I got one for 96 kph last week.

From various police men who told me that they'd pulled me over because I was going more than 120 (which was true). And experience.

 

I believe you got a ticket for going 96 kph. Where was that? What type of road (2 lane or 4 lane)?

 

Before declaring my statement as "rubbish", maybe try understanding that different people have different experiences. Besides, I have got no reason nor time to post something that wouldn't be true (at least to me).

Now we will have more unlicensed drivers and more unregistered and uninsured vehicles and bikes on the road, a great solution to a massive problem,

and of course more unroadworthy vehicles on the road.

Was on the Bangkok / Ayutthaya road the other night, 2 cops on a policebike, flashing red lights on (obviously late getting home). They passed 2 vehicles with no lights.

Did they stop and book the driver, take these unroadworthy vehicles off the road.   NO NO NO, that would mean some work.

 

Say no more

the Land Transport Department (LTD) and the Royal Thai Police will test their shared software program to see if it works well. 

 

They're still trying to incorporate characters from the Line chat app into their programme.

 

On a more serious note, I know Thais who drive around without licenses, insurance and road tax (or whatever it is called in Thailand). Good luck with catching this lot. And then there are those who are connected, who knows someone who knows someone... the list goes on.

 

Also, and on its own, this programme and app isn't a bad idea. But, coming from where it's coming from, it looks like another flash-in-pan pipe-dream. It will lack the most important aspect - enforcement - and the whole thing will fall apart within a year, be archived, only to be regurgitated on a slow news day a few years later.

Isn't most of this stuff already in place ? Fines certainly follow the car owner and turn up in the mail. I am sure the wife had to pay an outstanding fine before she could sell a car recently. Its always been that outstanding por lor bor and fines had to be paid before a car could be sold. Sound like they are just adding cannot renew if fines are outstanding.

Non-immigrant (O-A) visa holders: 38 million 

Number of medical visits by them: 3.42 million

Number of long-stay expats seeking medical services: 80,950

Number of unpaid traffic tickets: 5.2 million

 

No doubt Thai authorities will soon see this connection?  :whistling:

Since implementing the very same thing in Taiwan, it has worked perfectly.  That also includes the parking fees that they still use in some places by hand (no meters yet / go figure). So you always see people in paying their fees/fines right away at 7/11 etc.  And after 2 or 3 months, they also have to pay the interest too so that makes them giddy-up to pay.  Whats more important to Chinese????......$$$.....they hate giving it away and why it works!!!......And why I think it may work in Thailand.

You seriously imagined that would have been thought through. You’re in Thailand!

Just like TM30 it will be up to you to force the previous owner (landlord) to pay up or you will have to pay the fine(s)

To be fair from what i have been told its 100kph if you do 99kph you won't get a ticket at least i havent after always keeping to that speed.

How do you know what speed you are doing? Vehicle speedometers are just indicators and are never calibrated against a master reference. By government to manufacturer agreement original installed speedometers over-read by around 5 kph but this figure is not linear and can vary over the speed range.

 

On the open road I aim to cruise at 100 kph INDICATED which is at the 12 o'clock position on my speedo yet will surely be exceeding the national limit.

 

Modifications to the vehicle from the original such as lower or higher profile tyres or larger or smaller diameter wheels can also change the speed indication.

 

The RTP have, finally, caught on to the use of Traffic Cameras to capture offences but, from what I have seen with speeding 'tickets' the speed 'gate' is set too low and issuing tickets to vehicles for 92 kph is just plain silly when huge numbers of vehicles are rocketing down the overtaking lane at 120 kph plus!

The only good idea is to keep them off the road, ie jail or firing squad.

Do traffic fines have interest for late payment? If not, I think they should.
