Crackdown on taxi drivers who refuse to take passengers


Cabbies who refuse to take passengers can now be arrested if those affected call the 1197 hotline or visit www.trafficpolice.go.th and provide the taxi’s licence plate number, Pol Colonel Weerawit Watjanapukka of the Traffic Police Command said Monday.

He also said that police would issue warnings for petty traffic violations instead of tickets from September 1. Those who receive these warnings will face the maximum fine if they repeat the offence, he added.
