Thailand tightens traffic rules and regulations at major tourist destinations


The Royal Thai Police and its related divisions – Tourist Police, Traffic Police, Strategy Division, Foreign Affairs Division – in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism and Sports and the Department of Highways are strengthening the enforcement of traffic laws on motorists and motorcyclists.

The strict enforcement will cover 10 key traffic rules and regulations including driving on the pavement, driving without a license, driving against the traffic/not giving way to pedestrians at crossings, driving without wearing a seatbelt/helmet, careless or inconsiderate driving, driving under the influence/driving while intoxicated, illegal car accessorising, and parking in a prohibited space.

The move came in response to the Royal Thai Government’s broader efforts upgrade safety and security standards, and to boost trust and confidence among the public.
