Land Transport Dept to adopt new method to control speeding passenger vans

BANGKOK, Feb 26 – The Department of Land Transport will soon kickoff a new project to control speed limits of passenger vans, using Radio Frequency Identification (RFI) technology.

The system to be installed in public vans will help track their locations and speed. It will be tested on March 15 before being officially launched in April.

Starting on April 1, violators will be fined 5,000 baht and 10,000 baht, and face licence revocation for repeated wrongdoings, said Land Transport Department chief Somchai Siriwattanachoke.

Deputy Transport Minister Chadchart Sittiphan will preside over opening of a training course on safety for public van operators.

To ensure their safety rights are protected by the RFID technology, passengers are advised to use the service of registered public vans with yellow licence plates and bearing symbols of the Transport Co. and Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA) on the side of vans.

Illegal passenger vans normally bear white licence plates with blue or black letters. (MCOT online news)
