    Desperate City Hall Doubles Fines for Undeterred Sidewalk Motorists

    Jintamas Saksornchai

    BANGKOK City Hall on Thursday said the number of motorcycle jockeys on sidewalks is almost unchanged even after more than 3 million baht in fines were collected from them in the past three months.


    While admitting that setting up more checkpoints across Bangkok failed to clear motorcyclists from sidewalks, Deputy Gov. Sakoltee Phattiyakul said the minimum fine had recently been increased from 500 baht to 1,000 baht, hoping it would discourage further violations of the law.

    Since July, authorities in more than 230 checkpoints busted 8,000 riders on sidewalks, with 5,000 being fined and the rest let off with warnings, according to Sakoltee.

    Immediate confiscation of a violator's motorbike would definitely prove to be a deterrent.

    The PM could give a serious "public-safety" warning announcement, during one of his Friday evening (nationwide) TV broadcasts.

    a quite profitable revenue increase, an extra THB 1M per month, hmm... perhaps they'll hire some more cops

    Easy solution, yellow card then impound mosai and make owner crawl through hell to get it back.

    Nah, they'll never think of it.
