Altogether 540 motorists and motorcyclists had driving license points deducted on the first day of the enforcement of the points system yesterday (Monday), said the spokesman for the Royal Thai Police, Pol Maj-Gen Archayon Kraithong today.
The most common violations were failure to display a valid annual road tax sticker (233), not displaying license plates (81) and speeding (63). Details of other violations are not available.
He said that police have been ordered to enforce the system strictly, to promote discipline among motorists and motorcyclists and to reduce road accidents, loss of life and damage to property.
Meanwhile, Deputy Government Spokesperson Rachada Dhnadirek said that the National Telecommunications Public Company, in cooperation with the Royal Thai Police, the Land Transport Department and the state-run Krung Thai Bank, have developed an application called “Khub Dee”, through which all drivers can check their driving license points, points deducted and fines imposed.
They can also check their previous traffic tickets and challenge alleged traffic law infringements.
Drivers can download the app through the Apple App Store or Google Play by typing “Khub Dee” and signing in through their Facebook, Line, I Cloud or Google accounts and accepting terms and conditions. Then they fill in their ID card and driving license numbers.
They can also check the status of their driving license points at the following website: https://ptm.police.go.th/eTicket
