Anyone seen the movie DEATH RACE 2000. 

The Thai boy racers will treat this as  a competition to see who can get the most points!!! So someone gets killed , do a runner abroad and the cops don't care.

If they are using CCTV evidence, how will they know who was driving the car? My wife drives my car. Her brother dives her car. My maid owns a pick-up and she doesn’t drive at all but her son in law drives it. And what about company owned vehicles?

 

A lot of people are going to say they lent the car to someone called Jiap who lives somewhere up country and they never knew his real name.

I thought it was three months from September. That means starting from yesterday. In any case, the traffic laws and their enforcers get another 5 weeks holiday from doing their job.

 

The whole thing is a joke (but I am not laughing). Points will only be deducted if one has a licence and if they are caught. 

 

The 365 dangerous days is the default position.

The vehicle owner is responsible for all infringements in such cases.... although I have no issue wrt fines in that case, it is unfair in the case of penalty points... ie only direct convictions. A pity, will never happen as police would have to work harder.

Another pointless rule that will not affect anything. 

Enforced 1 day, just like the baby seat and seat belt. 

Then when stop how are they going to verified,  will they all be carrying calculators.

Thailand must have a ministry of silly talk..

They waffle all this stuff out and rarely do anything about it.

 

Basically you need a licence or registered vehicle to accrue  points.

3 points for DUI. Great! I can get busted 3 times in 12 months driving on the turps before losing my ticket. What a time to be alive 

Plus they say once you have been done for an offence,  you can't be done for that offence again that day!!

 

How can that be so?

And when them get to much points and lose the right to drive them will just keep driving like nothing happen.

You still need to get to work to pay the fines.
