PHUKET: Marut Puangbanjong, the Phuket airport taxi driver found guilty in November of two charges against him for reckless driving that resulted in a six-vehicle wipeout and the death of motorbike rider in peak-hour traffic more than a year ago, has yet to present himself to the Phuket Land Transport Office to have his commercial driver’s licence suspended.

 

Marut in November was sentenced to four years’ imprisonment for the wipeout on Thepkrasattri Rd in October 2018, which occurred while a tourist who just landed in Phuket was still in the taxi, but the sentence was later commuted on appeal to two years’ suspended sentence on a B200,000 good behaviour bond.

 

In total, Marut spent 28 days behind bars for his deadly driving.

This is the famous Thai inconsistency, the killers are free and the little criminals locked in the cell for years ... best example; the Little Red Bull ...

"I will suspend his licence for a period of up to three months,” he added.

UP TO Three Months.........Wow !!!! I bet he is trembling at the thought. If he is ignoring the court order to surrender his license then he is not going to bother too much about working without one.

 

"Asked why the PLTO is refusing to act on a court verdict, Mr Prapai said, “I cannot use any other source of confession to proceed the banning. I want to ask him by myself.” ..............Translation...........He wants to make sure the envelope goes into the correct pocket.
