Crackdown on traffic offenders
Deputy chief of the Metropolitan Police Worasak Noppasitthiporn Tuesday instructed traffic police in each precinct to set up checkpoints and issue 100 tickets a day to motorists who break five common traffic offences.
These are driving against the traffic flow, driving on footpaths, double-parking, cutting in front of other vehicles from close range and running a red light.
Police precincts that fail to meet the goal would have to explain why directly to Worasak. The move follows many complaints about people on motorbikes and cars who violate the law and cause traffic jams and accidents.
