All the check points I've been through they just looked at my tax sticker and seatbelt I have never been asked for a license,may change tomorrow

I did a search on a student who I went to school with. All I could find were court proceedings. He was appealing for a lighter sentence after having been caught no less than 10 times unlicenced driving. Yes, they certainly do go to jail; unlicenced driving is a very serious offence in many countries. Not here, though.

1.     Points system on driving licenses WILL reduce accidents in Thailand

 

2.    He HOPES that once the system comes in in Thailand that the number of accidents on the roads will diminish.

 

Third option, he knows that it will make no difference. You can't put points on a licence that does not exist

Truly enforce laws ,and stop putting on a big show by harassing drivers at check points..Stop focusing on Drama,appearance and optics and start thinking about sustainable results...

 

the entire society is largely based upon image and drama rather than substance.

In order to get points off your license, you should have a license first right?

The idea is not bad - and not new. I remember quite some years ago they already had such a penalty point system and affixed little stickers onto your license. Need I tell more? 

The idea died faster than the sun would set .......

Considering no one on here drinks, smokes, takes bar girls, why on earth are you here if you always lambast everything the gov try to do and generally think the country is a complete sham? It's all very strange.

Why the hell adopting all the rubbish from the western world ? People seem to be happy as it is and so am I. Easier to fleece people instead of improving school and welfare system. Here they should copy Japan and soms western countries.

Maybe they can add a barcode on your DL like they tried to do for scanning your passport. That worked out very well...

I already have 3 red light fines from the same intersection that switches to yellow light and then red light within 1 second and no way to avoid... Automatic camera system.  I guess I will get 12 points within a couple of years.. great and will have to retake the license test...

 

Some of you will question and say im at fault. Let me explain. This intersection I drive around 100 times each month. And roughly every 2 months or so it switches to yellow just before I'm going through it. On the ticket there are 2 photos. First photo shows yellow and my car just before entering. Second photo shows red and my car being in the middle of the intersection.

It's impossible to avoid because there not enough time to stop when it switches from Green to yellow when you are 1 meter from the stop line and doing 50kmh.

Theres not enough time to go through the intersection before it switches to red because it's a huge intersection and the yellow light is only 1 second long or so.

 

meanwhile somchai will continue driving without license and insurance.

I am sure someone already said it, need to have license in the first place👍

 

The only way way to reduce deaths on the road is to start enforcing law with serious consequences and provide proper training . I would estimate vast majority would not know what road rules were .
