Bang Phli police station introduces drive-through traffic ticket payment service

Bang Phli police station in Samut Prakan province has introduced what they claimed to be the country’s first drive-through traffic ticket payment service to facilitate traffic violaters in paying fines at the station.

With the service, which was officially launched yesterday (April 18), the time for paying fines would be reduced to just a few minutes, instead of an hour, said Bang Phli police station superintendent Pol Col Sophon Mongkolsophonrat.

He said that previously paying fines for traffic violation was time consuming as offenders have to drive to the  station and find place to park their cars as the station has limited space for parking.

He said the police came out with the idea from the drive-through service at fast food restaurants where driver could order food, buy things without having to leave the car.

The service was then introduced but adjusted with the circumstances at the police station, he said.

The drive-through traffic ticket payment service consists of two stop points. Driver first drives to the ticket point and hand over traffic ticket to police and pay the fine.

After that, driver proceeds to the second point which is connected and receive the fine receipt, and drive off, Pol Col Sophon said, adding that the process took only 2-3 minutes.

People using the service said they were satisfied with the initiative as it helped save their time and they were longer worried about parking space anymore.
