Bad drivers face losing licence

- +

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.
