Children under 6, or those 135cm or less in height, must be placed in booster seat or a child safety seat and wear seatbelts from September, or face a fine of up to 2,000 baht on conviction.

Exceptions to the seatbelt rule include special circumstances, such as for health reasons, whereby it is not possible to comply, but other safety measures must be in place.
