I Want Thai Traffic Rules In English

Recommended Posts

I am living here in Thailand since a couple of years. I would appreciate to have from you guys

reference to the Thai traffic-rules written in english.

I drive here after what I consider to be good driving, and I am competing with 8-10 year

old boys/girls on the streets and there seems to be next to nothing of rules in the traffic...

Where can I find the traffic-rules written in english please..

Thanks in beforehand...

I just can't help asking: Since rules don't apply here (no one follows the traffic laws), what is the use of knowing/reading them?

Some good links there, but in my experience these rules are never adhered to, and indeed not enforced. As a fralang driving it is very difficult to prove you was in the right.

Interesting to see some of the laws though. Like no overtaking on the nearside !! <deleted>!!

Car/Motorbike must be roadworthy, that is just a joke right?

1) Don't hit anything unless it's in the way

2) You're allowed to stop in the middle of a busy road for these reasons only

- to buy or sell food

- to talk to your mates

- (only for tuk tuks) to shout "Hey you where you go?" at foreigners

3) The rider must wear a helmet while riding a motorbike, other 4 passengers don't need to.

4) Drive on the left unless you're going to somewhere on the right, or cutting across a junction

Any more to add?

This has been discussed before Post #2 in this thread have attached "The Land Traffic Act" in English, albeit a bit old, from 1979.

Doesn't seem to be anything more recent in circulation. (You can also find this document on Thailaws.com)
