Implementation of the new Road Traffic Act, implementation of a three-month grace period
As reported on 101 Premier Thailand News the other day, Thailand amended the Road Traffic Act on September 5th (Monday) to impose stricter penalties on drunk driving. Fines have also been significantly increased for other traffic offenses such as no-heels and not wearing a seatbelt.

However, the Royal Thai Police (RTP) said that the new revised road traffic law was not yet widely recognized and needed more time to implement, so they decided to postpone the implementation of the new law for three months.

During this 3-month grace period (September-November), fines will be imposed under the previous Road Traffic Law, and at the same time, a warning will be issued that the next traffic offense will result in a fine under the new law and a police ticket will be issued together.

Police tickets are managed by the Police Ticket Management (PTM) database, which guarantees that when a police officer issues a ticket, the PTM's registered fines are charged at the same rate nationwide.

Flood water levels in Rangsit district near Bangkok reach dangerous levels on September 8, 2022
On September 8, 2022, nine rainwater drainage pumps failed in the Rangsit district of Pathum Thani province, near Bangkok, causing flood water levels to reach dangerous levels. It will take about three days to repair the broken drainage pump.

According to the Rangsit District official website, on the morning of September 8, 2022, the water level in the Rangsit Canal rose from 1.78 meters to 1.8 meters. Rangsit had 20 drainage pumps in operation, but 9 of them have failed, causing inadequate drainage of rainwater and flooding.

According to the outsourcing company that is in charge of repairing the drainage pump, the spare parts needed for repair are not in stock, so it is necessary to order spare parts from overseas, and it seems that delivery of spare parts will take about 3 days.

The Director of the Royal Irrigation Department, Prapit Chanma, has promised residents to install more drainage pumps in addition to repairing the broken pumps.

Rangsit City Hall has also announced that it will assist residents affected by the floods. If applicable, please report the damage to the city hall through his online platform at Rangsit city hall.

Heavy rains are expected to continue in the suburbs of Bangkok, Chonburi, and Rayong for the next few days. Please pay attention to flood information from Thai Meteorlogical Department.
