Law drafted to start charging for parking on public roads in Thailand

Government spokesman Sansern Kaewkamnerd announced yesterday that the Thai cabinet have approved a draft law relating to car parking and management which would allow local administrations to start charging people to park on public roads and issue fines for those who do not pay the charges.

The draft law will allow for the money raised from collection of parking fees and fines for violators to be used for local developments.

The new law lets individual administrative organisations set the fees for vehicle types, fine amounts and methods of collection, it also gives administrations the option to outsource the implementation and management of implementing the new system to the private sector.

If voted into effect the new law would come into force here in Pattaya meaning the days of parking on the streets around the city for free could be at an end.
