Modifying headlights can cost motorists up to Bt50,000 in fines





Motorists who have modified their headlights or taillights may face fines of up to Bt50,000, the Department of Land Transport warned recently.


“We have received complaints via the 1584 hotline about people’s visibility being affected by headlights and taillights that have been modified to be too bright, flashing or in colours other than those specified by law, such as blue,” said Jantira Buruspat, deputy director-general.


“Such modifications go against the 1979 Vehicle Act, which stipulates a maximum penalty of Bt2,000 if the vehicle’s equipment fails to meet legal requirements. It also violates the 1979 Land Transport Act, which stipulates a maximum penalty of Bt50,000 for adding objects to vehicles that can harm other people’s physical or mental health,” she added.


Jantira said Land Transport Offices in all provinces as well as certified vehicle inspection centres have been instructed to strictly screen vehicles for modifications when motorists come in for licence renewal or yearly inspection.


“Owners of vehicles that fail to meet requirements will be told to rectify their equipment before their licence is renewed or vehicle inspected,” she said. “We are also working with police by getting officers to randomly inspect vehicles at selected checkpoints. Officials can immediately press charges if any vehicles are found with modified headlights or taillights.”


Photos or video clips of vehicles with modified lights can be sent to Line ID @1584DLT, Facebook @dlt1584, http://ins.dlt.go.th/cmpweb/ or via email: [email protected], along with licence number and date and time the pictures were taken.

What's about them?

I hope the include those ones with "Blacked out" rear lights. I mean how stupid can they get. regards worgeordie

Another flash in the pan crackdown, I really don't know why they bother announcing it, nothing is ever done to address the problem, Thailand the country where you do as you please and no one cares.

I just enjoy the cars that drive at night that have all of the neon on the undercarriage and across the grills, then add in the strobe effect blue headlights, and the lights inside the front windshield that flash outwards as well.  Makes me think it is a rolling disco or gogo.....The same with the tricked out motors I have seen with all of the flashing strobe lights.1, but the best ones are the Tuk Tuk's. Image result for Photos of strobe lights and neon lights on vehicles in Bangkok Thailand

Can you imagine the mentality of the person who drives such a bus. Thicko!    

It is the ultimate party bus.  Once at your destination they set up the stage with the GoGo poles and the Coyotes entertain you at each of the temples they drive you too.
