Transport minister says drivers, not vans, are key threat to passenger safety

Recommended Posts

A real driver training, much higher fees for them if they drive bad/too fast (by example if he drives too fast and usually has to pay 500 Baht, he has to pay 500 Baht for every person on board) and regular checks of the vans. And with checks I mean real ones including the brakes, lights and so on, not the simple checks they make right now and they are finishes after one minute.

Bottom line though, will just end up with older, less maintained vans,.. with no change in drivers training, ability, sobriety, safety.

It is a start although the guy doesn't to sincere since he is reversing course.  Now is he going to put words into action since nothing ever seem to be done thereafter. The biggest question for me is like before who in Thailand is going to put forth what really need to be done to retrain these drivers and the new ones who will come along with how to inspect the vehicles last what is really going to be done when the above don't as they have been doing for years decades.

If the vans where fitted with GPS system that where sealed from tampering then the recording of the info could determine speeds between any 2 points,if any van is found to have been speeding actions can be taken against the offending companies and drivers.

Given there are approx 4-6000 (?) public mini vans....monitoring all of them with the current level of GPS Trackers installed, is an impossible task. A bit like the land office trying to get 11 million people to pay their fines.....now I hear the speed cameras are off!
