Phuket police confirm new traffic fines to start Nov 1


Recommended Posts

Hands up......who knew there were that many different traffic offences in Thailand?

 

PS What happened to the points system? Is it operational or simply forgotten about?

...but the penalties for drunk driving remain the same as those brought into law in 2015, said Col Santat, who oversees all Traffic Police throughout the province.

I would have believed that the fine for "drunk driving", would be very important to increase, for improvement of traffic safety...🤨

I wonder what "necessary reason" for driving on a footpath is...🤔

what bike lanes?

 

 

There were huge issues in Bangkok - the bike lanes were a great idea, then Thai-ness slipped into the fray.

 

Vendors placed their food carts in the bike lanes, cars parked in them. Due to a lack of enforcement before long the sense of entitlement slipped in that the bike lanes could be used for almost anything else except cycling !!!! 

 

A great initiative poorly executed and poorly policed - they are all but non existent now.

(This was in Bangkok, I’m not aware of any Bike Lanes in Phuket)

Guys, be happy with that what it is. Who wants or needs rediculous traffic regulations like in the West, S'pore, Japan... ???

Keep your 1 foot on the ground while using footpath, it's not driving then...
