Recommended Posts


Thailand’s new driving penalty point system proved to be a challenge for over 500 drivers on the first day of its implementation. The new system came into effect yesterday, and 540 drivers in the country had points deducted. 

According to the spokesperson of the Royal Thai Police Major General, Archayon Kraithong, the top three offences that got points deducted were:

1. Using vehicles without proper vehicle tax or proof of tax (233 drivers)

2. Using vehicles that had no driving license plates (81 drivers)

3. Driving over the speed limit (63 drivers)

Good to see this is being implemented, may not be perfect, but at least something is being done.

If & when this is rolled out across the Kingdom I would imagine offence #3 will be astronomical in number.
