BANGKOK, 4 April 2016 (NNT) – The Prime Minister has expressed his concern regarding taxi scams in Thailand, urging fellow drivers to help report misconducts to authorities.

Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha has addressed the persisting issue of Thai taxi scams, such as demanding inappropriately high fares particularly to tourists, saying that he believes most taxi drivers are honest and would never conduct such offence.

He urged taxi drivers to help authorities by reporting any inappropriate conduct to officials.

The Prime Minister has assigned the Department of Land Transport to strictly collect the service history of each taxi according to the license plate, and are authorized to punish taxi drivers who violate the regulation, should the evidence indicate so.

Tourists police have also been urged to improve their performance while servicing tourists, as tourism is a main economic driver for Thailand, in which taxi services also play a crucial part, the PM has said.

"he believes most taxi drivers are honest and would never conduct such offence."

He is delusional.

"He urged taxi drivers to help authorities by reporting any inappropriate conduct to officials."

He is deluding himself.

"authorized to punish taxi drivers who violate the regulation,"

Its not happening Prayut. All your associates and cohorts in high places are making too much money from this and most other scams.

That kind of change doesn't start with a PM or a Tourist police, it should have started from home, when they were

young, they should have taught all that by their mentors and parents, but they weren't, they simply now do what

their parents did, which is to get as much as they can any way any how, and decency and honesty is an

alien concept to them as everyone around is engaging in doing the same.....

How many times have we heard this?

It will never happen.Taxi drivers get fined 500 baht for wrong doing.

Get back on the street and then overcharge by 500 baht fine paid.

This guy needs to learn how to prioritise. The economy is in the shitter, and he's worried about taxis and booth babes.

Address the roots of this issue. How are taxi driving licenses first being issued?

...urging fellow drivers to help report misconducts to authorities

Great proposal. That way it will be much easier to demand a brown envelope from "wrong doers" rather than the need to find them which might require some effort.

I know: Suggestion...

Tell all taxi scammers to send bt300 to the office?

Golly, given the numbers of Taxis in Bangkok, that should keep the ministry busy!

That'll teach 'em to laugh in church!

It's a sad day when you are so "concerned" with taxi scams, that you ask taxis supervise themselves......

I've been here for about 15 years and found 99.99% of all taxi drivers ok and friendly so stop lying on this forum. As for the remainder of your comments that is all that our so called PM does, issue instructions, like any military leader, which is where it all starts and ends with no results.
