Nope, that would violate the curfew. You MUST stay in the car. Luckily, there is the good old trusted Comfort-100, which starting from June 1 will probably experience skyrocketing sales.

 

As per usual, these government-issued "clarifications" make things even less clear than they already are.

Thanks, yeah as I understood it to be.  Therefore can't see many inter state buses running through the night when many destination points in between are "of limits" - this would mean even more empty seats, less profit.

With a bus load of empty seats it will be "more loss" not less profit.

Guess you've not travelled much on buses here?  They don't move with empty seats, let alone "a load of empty".  But we re both saying the same thing. 😉

Passenger vehicles as well as those involved in public transport of people or goods that depart from a province before 11pm can arrive at the destination in another province after 3am the next day.

So people CAN travel during curfew. That's because it's a Thai-style curfew, meaning that the rules don't really count and, anyway, those who might police it are tucked up in bed anyway.

Another question: It says it's okay if you depart before 11:00 p.m., that implies that it's not okay to depart after 11:00 p.m. but before 3:00 a.m. So, if I drive by at midnight, how will the police person know when I left? Will there be an app for that?

You'll be booked for sure because you'll be driving a private vehicle not public transport.

But, it reads, "Passenger vehicles as well as those involved in public transport of people or goods that depart from a province before 11pm ..."

 

I would be in a passenger vehicle. 

 

What if I take a taxi from Bangkok to Ayutthaya and am stopped in between around 11:30 p.m.? How will they know my starting point and time to decide if I've violated the second rule?

They don't seem to trust their own numbers. As there's now hardly any community spread throughout Thailand (according to those numbers), how can you spread an extinct disease by traveling from one province to another one?

The curfew is completely pointless. No country with zero community transmission has a curfew. No advanced economy has a curfew.

 

There is almost zero community transmission in Thailand. The future risk is when the borders open up. And that is controlled by quarantines and "test, trace and isolate" policies.

 

The curfew does nothing health related. It is a throwback to how Prayut controlled the people when he usurped power in the coup.

 

It is way that a scared and stupid old man keeps his boot on the neck of his citizens under the pretext that is will stop a heath crisis.
