Points system on driving licenses will reduce accidents in Thailand

Recommended Posts

And where do you stick the 3 points for drink drivers who do not, and have never had a licence?

Yeah, and that's exactly how it will be viewed. Not only that, sooooo many dont even have a licence to begin with... it's only a small fine and then they move on. Will be interesting to see what happens. 

Nothing will happen its already forgot about until next annual transport policy meeting

Drunk driving: 3 points...……………………..OK, can do 4 times

Red lights: 2 points...…………………...……..Can do 6 times

Helmets and speeding: 1 point each.......Can do 12 times

 

That will teach them!

But only 1 month ban if you lose all of your points up then get a clean licence WoW not in uk 1 year ban !

these people are in cloud cuckoo land...

it shows how the processes for "selection" in Thailand are at fault and people end up in high positions who simply are not up to doing the job. 

The depth of ignorance displayed at the conference by senior officials is breathtaking.

 

There are road safety orgs operating in Thailand but by and large they are ignored presumably because those in authority just don't understand.

Road fines etc were not suddenly all introduced in ten the UK at the rates they are now - it has been a process of decades to get to where they are now.

One thing is the number of offences has gradually reduced making the serious ones all the more serious.....for instance the correct sequence of speeding at over 100 mph could in theory attract a £10,000 fine as well as a ban. But the original fines were much smaller even in relation to income. A sudden introduction in Thailand would just result in chaos and lack of enforcement.

He was quoted as saying that there are 6 deaths a day (Thaivisa notes that this was probably meant to be 60 in their story). He said the death toll was more than 20,000 people a year that would tally with about 60 per day.

Teach people to drive and the road rules, and enforce them would be a good start

For the remaining five years ...so 2015 to 2020 and we are in the middle of 2019 and nothing was made .

Waiting for the 17 months remaining ..:crazy:

 

 

For the remaining five years, Thailand will seriously and strictly enforce the laws to achieve the 80% target as now that the road fatality issue was placed as a national agenda and law enforcement will be tightened. "
