Pay traffic fines or your car will be banned!

Recommended Posts

Solution is easy, equipped every police car with a mobile ANPR system connected to the Traffic and Police database and if any outstanding warrants no insurance/tax or unpaid fines then the Police will just arrest the offender. Seize the vehicle, and give the owner a limited time to pay the fine. If the fine still remains outstanding, sell or scrap the vehicle, simple !

To me, the white line rule is a giant scam and a nice little earner for little effort by those sitting in front of a computer screen and does little or nothing to enforce bad driving and the ignoring of more important issues, such as red light jumping, ignoring double yellow lines, driving against traffic flow, the wearing of helmets and many more. Ah, but that means cops on the streets. I rest my case.

I see already coming; someone is going to hack the system and transfers tickets to another name. The person who gets them cannot pass their yearly car test and has to prove he/she wasn't there... 

yearly car/truck tests are on vehicles over 7 years old..

You are an irresponsible driver who cares little about the law. There has to be laws like this because at 120kph you are in less of a position to react when other lawbreakers and speedsters do something unexpected as you know for sure you CAN expect!

The conditions include other drivers - those passing you are simply making a bad situation potentially a lot worse!

 

In Thailand, especially, we are reminded frequently that most deaths on the road are caused by drunk or speeding drivers.

To be an irresponsible driver and a lawbreaker is one thing - for you to come on here and brag about about it shows your contempt to be no better than that of Thai people who I guess you would condemn as "bad" drivers

There is something very naive and preachy about your reply. I am a bad person and no better than the Thai people who are bad drivers, because I go over 56mph? Huh?

I do not understand the fuss.

Cars can be banned. People are still able to drive, no matter what is "banned".

What a load of nonsense, considering 80% of road deaths are drunk, speeding motor cycles riders, not motor vehicles on major road systems.

Its so amazing, how stict and strong they enforce the law, when it comes to immigration and law enforcement against foreigners.

But with the traffic, they are absolute unable. They should do it same as Germany or Swiss. Then just enforce the law and rules. Done.

Look to the death rates of Thailand, Germany and Swiss.

 

Confiscate the car and let them watch, when it is put in a car crusher.

 

All!!!!! of the not only normal people also the rich etc.

So more cars without valid drivers who are duly licensed, registered, or insured....nice. Unless you plan to tow the vehicles and hold them until the fine is paid, or the vehicle value reaches the fines and auction them off, then there is no way to enforce this, as if it was ever going to be enforced anyway. What will likely happen is that police officers will get bigger brown envelope from those who don't want their cars confiscated, call it a win-win for the RTP.

I know people who have 30 unpaid speeding tickets. They are issuing tickets for going 2 KM per hour over the limit. The national highways have speed limits of 90 kph. That is silly, inane, unenforceable, and impractical. These fines need to be ignored, as the speed limits are unreasonable. I doubt they will create a centralized system. Hope not.  

 

What the RTP, and especially the lame, incompetent, lazy and useless highway patrol need to be doing, is pulling people over for reckless driving, not issuing tickets for going 92 KPH!

What? I have only ever been issued tickets for going at least 20 or 30 km/h over the limit. Never heard of anyone getting pulled over for doing 92, I believe it's either 110 or above or more often than not, 120 and above. Indeed whenever there is a police traffic stop using mobile cameras, they only pull you over if you're doing 120 or more in a 90 zone. Otherwise they'd literally have to pull over 4 in every 5 motorists!

 

As you say, issuing a ticket for going 2km/h over the limit (if this does indeed happen) is going way too far and is even more insane than what happens in nanny state Australia, where they at least give you a leeway of about 5-9km/h (on a highway).

In the middle, since the slow people drive on the rightside of the lanes 555

 

Once I got stopped by police who clocked me on a lasergun with 122kph.

I almost arrived at my destination in Chainat and he asked me where I wanted to go.

I told him just 500 meter from here and then a left turn into Chainat to my lovely parents in law.

He told me, ok no issues, we won't give you a ticket. Just drive safely.

The cop was also from Chainat 555. Very nice people there.

Even they had proof of me driving 2kph too fast, they didn't give me any ticket.

About 8 months ago I got a ticket in the mail for doing 105 on a 80kph highway.  The great majority of highways I drive on in and around Bangkok have either 80 or 90kph speed limits.   It was o-dark early going to immigration to renew my retirement extension of stay here in Bangkok.   The ticket arrived in the mail about 7 weeks after the incident with a note saying the ticket is due payment no later than 30 days after the incident.  Oh well, can't pay within 30 days if the ticket takes 7 weeks to arrive you mailbox.  Anyway, went to a KrungThai ATM and paid the ticket.
