I wonder why they don't need traffic fine insurance before they can drive, Just joking.

However they want us to have medical insurance for doing supposed runners from hospitals, not joking, but a joke.

So, loose points or pay something on the spot to the police monthly party fund, great improvement of the system. At least if you don't have any money, you can now loose a few points instead, until the critical moment when you are approaching 12 points, then it's time to cough up some stang:)

not wearing a seat belt and not paying a fine on time is worth one point.

So they will be installing seat belts on the converted pickup trucks and 40 year old vans they use for transporting children to school? Safety first after all. 😆

"driving under the influence of alcohol (non-severe cases). "

 

non-severe??

what is that?

cannot walk, but can drive?

 

 

“I drive better when I’m drunk” . Probably true here.

I was around Khao Yai a few days ago at a restaurant I visit regularly for lunch. On the next table was an elderly foreigner with a beer in hand and doodling with a pen in the other. Sitting at the same table a Thai woman eating. As they left in the pick up, HE was driving. He scraped the pick up and drove off, engine roaring and looking like he was in a formula 1. He should have used up all his 12 points in one go. I’m all for zero tolerance of alcohol when driving.

Yes, coffee money.

And more corruption to avoid points and keep the driver license.

A win win for the bib's........again 😞

Does the 12 points ever reset (assuming you don't reach it)?   I mean is the 12 points like a lifetime limit.  Points systems I've been use to reset after so many years.  Like say every 5 years...if you had accumulated say 9 of 12 points over a 5 year period then at the 5 year point you reset to 0 points. 

the quote says "every driver gets 12 points" so the points for an infringement would reduce that number, i guess once you hit zero they start again? so congratulations all we all have 12 points already......
