Motorists who repeatedly break traffic laws may soon see their driving licences suspended for up to 90 days, or even cancelled.
Licence suspension is a new measure to be used over the next 1-2 months by the Land Transport Department in conjunction with fines to reduce road accidents, Matichon Online quoted director general Asdsathai Rattanadilok Na Phuket as saying.
"At present, if you run a red light and are caught on camera or stopped by the police, you pay a fine. Soon, if you break the law the second time, your driving licence may be suspended for 30 days," he said.
