2k Fine For Spitting On The Street

The “smoke police” will be happy chappies today now they have something else to harass people about after the BMA announced that anyone spitting or blowing their nose on to the street now face a 2,000 baht.

All 50 districts have been ordered to step up their efforts to keep Bangkok clean and litter free with spitting and nose blowing the latest offense to be targeted as it’s considered infectious to others and city residents need to be more aware of how they dispose of their phlegm.

The new regulations also cover anyone spitting or snotting on public transport.

This law is anything but new and was originally passed some 20 years ago but like many rules and regulations across the country, they have never been enforced – that is until today’s announcement.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
