Points system on driving licenses will reduce accidents in Thailand

If you borrow my car and get caught for speeding, should that effect me? I don't think so. In some countries in Europe traffic cams takes photos of the drivers face and the plate,but they still can't fine the owner of the car,and that's the way it should be. Let's say you rent a car and run a red light, do you think it should effect the rental company?

The company is legally obliged to say who they allowed to drive the vehicle....if not it would be stolen.

Most cameras now take a photo of the driver, but of course Thai cars have a heavy tined glass.

In UK the  owner is obliged by law to say who was driving....the fines for not declaring this are even higher than the original motoring offence.

most fleet owners use log books or similar to say who is driving.

 

I'd suggest that it is pretty clear that Thailand has nothing approaching the infrastructure, legal system or personel trained to administer any of this.

I agree, it will be difficult to enforce it, and don't forget that maybe 30-40% of the drivers don't have a license in the first place.

one third of motorists have no driving license or riding permit!!!

so this law will not be effective anyway if they cannot clear the motorists with no relevant license!!!

If they haven't got enough money to pay the fine, how can they afford the tax? And what happens if they don't pay the fine and the tax?

 

Another fine?

Confiscate their smartphones.

Since my missus drives cars registered in my name and gets regular speeding fines which she refuses to pay, I might have to transfer the cars to the company.

No need to transfer anything. Don't give her the keys to the car anymore. Give her a monthly supply of money to cover her bus fares for her transportation.

Latest research also shows tinfoil hats happen to reduce stupidity as well.

No. Enforcing laws will help reduce accidents. Buzzwords and info-boards, etc, achieve nothing other than boosting some useless officials' egos. 

Yup, they have no freeking idea of what to do! Seemingly always looking for the easy way out.

 

Until some "authorities" or elitists or powerful/rich people or the families lose lives nothing will change. But challenge those people's self entitlements and it will bring about another "coup". Seems that killing/maiming ordinary citizen, on the roads, is acceptable!?

 

Pathetic! 👎
