Traffic points from five hundred and forty Thailand drivers have been deducted on the first day of a new traffic system.

The traffic point-deduction system has officially been put into effect in Thailand yesterday, January 9th, 2023 and it will change the legal consequences of Thailand’s notorious traffic offenses for good.

The Spokesperson of the Royal Thai Police Major General Archayon Kraithong said today (January 10th) that there were 540 drivers whose traffic points have been deducted on the first day. This system is aimed to improve driving behaviors and decrease road accidents.

The top three deducted points were:
