Are points being recorded for driving offenses

Recommended Posts

A local driver took me to the airport using my truck, I've just received notification from the Thai police for speeding while he drove it back, my question is are points now being issued for driving offences? the paperwork is in Thai so its not clear to me and I've seen news reports that they will be introduced.

Concern for yourself or your truck?  Is the suggested point system for the vehicle?

As I understand it the owner of the truck will get the points, unless you tell them otherwise. But if the points system is not yet active I’m relaxed about the situation.

It won't matter anyway.  It looks as though 30% of the population drives without licenses anyway.  So when the points system hits, 50% of the population drives without a license. Stopped at a roadblock.  Pay your 500 THB fine and get issued a receipt that allows you to drive the rest of the day without being fined at other roadblocks.

Welcome to Amazing Thailand.  Worried about 'points?'  Just Go Native!

It's always a good idea not to let anyone drive your vehicle.

 

get a local company/driver to drive you to the airport in their vehicle, not alot of money.

Reading comprehension not a positive with you? 

It seems obvious that the infringement would have been by a speed camera or similar. No opportunity to engage in corruption as you suggest.  Isn't there forum rule about promoting illegal activities?

Some Land Transport offices, like Chatuchak, have a Police department. You'll get pulled when you go to do your tax. Same happens when buying a vehicle from someone else, you go to transfer it into your name only to find that the seller had unpaid tickets.

 

Da Roadrunner uses an office which lacks a Police dept. Just as well with my record! If I get a ticket I just bin it, isn't Thailand wonderful.

Bought and sold loads of cars here over the years ( taxes etc ) this is the very first time I’ve heard of unpaid fines having to be paid.

Is this first hand info?

I never pay my tickets, straight in the bin!

Where I live there is a link between LTO and the BiB regarding unpaid fines. Mrs.Trans has the T-shirt, went to pay her bike road tax and was told to go to the police station to pay an unpaid parking fine that she knew nothing about. The BiB actually showed her a photo of her dodgy parking on their PC. She paid the fine..

Often called a taxi

Why do they call you a taxi? In the past I've been called an ambulance.
