Traffic police to get tough with truckers after accident kills 1

Bangkok traffic police plan stringent enforcement of traffic laws on truckers following a recent accident in which a loaded container from a truck fell from a tollway onto a van below and killed the van driver.

Police Maj-General Chirasan Kaewsaeng-ek, commander of Traffic Police, said yesterday he had instructed traffic police officers on elevated and normal roads to punish motorists and the commercial trucks that were guilty of violations like driving recklessly; driving at illegal speeds; using trailer trucks with deteriorated links; and those carrying loads beyond permissible weight and height.
