Bangkok lane-change crackdown nets 50,000 offenders in two days

In the first two days following a strict ban on the practice, Bangkok traffic police issued more than 50,000 tickets to motorists at 15 flyovers and underpasses for illegally changing lanes to overtake other vehicles.

The tickets can result in fines of up to Bt1,000.

Pol Col Kitti Ariyanon, deputy commander of the traffic unit, said that, on the first day alone, Wednesday, 27,514 tickets were handed out, mostly to motorcyclists.

Offenders were caught in the act by a Lane Change Camera System, which involves four automatic cameras at each location.

Eighty per cent of the offences occurred in daylight hours, Kitti said.

On Wednesday, most offences were recorded on the Siriraj Bridge on the outbound lane of Aroon Amarin Road, followed by the bridge at the Din Daeng intersection on the inbound lane of Din Daeng Road and the Huay Kwang tunnel alongside the inbound lane of Ratchadapisek Road.

Kitti noted that the number of violations on Wednesday far exceeded the daily average rate of 7,000 offences during a one-month trial run.

He expressed hope that the number will drop dramatically once more motorists learn about the camera system, as occurred at the flyover at the Government Complex alongside the outbound lane of Chaeng Wattana Road thanks to a police public relations campaign.

Lane-changing offences nearing 100,000 after four days of camera work



 Just four days after a strict ban on the practice was implemented, Bangkok traffic police had issued nearly 100,000 tickets to motorists at 18 flyovers and underpasses for illegally changing lanes to pass other vehicles.

The May 9 ban at 15 new locations and three longtime spots led to the tickets being issued to 96,830 motorists, with accompanying fines of up to Bt1,000, said Pol Maj-General Jirapat Phumjit, deputy chief of the Metropolitan Police Bureau in charge of traffic affairs.

The law-breakers were caught in the act by a Lane Change Camera System, which involves four automatic cameras at each location.

Eighty per cent of the offences occurred in daylight hours, with motorcyclists accounting for the majority of culprits, followed by sedan drivers, said Jirapat.

At 11,307 incidents, Din Daeng intersection on the inbound lane of Din Daeng Road had the highest number of offenders. Next was the Siriraj Bridge on the outbound lane of Aroon Amarin Road with 10,932 offences, and then the Huay Kwang tunnel alongside the inbound lane of Ratchadapisek Road with 10,713. The spot with the least violations was the Sutthisan Tunnel, at 700, he added.

The three spots with previously installed cameras are Yommarat intersection, Prachanukul intersection and Sutthisan Tunnel.
