New legislation now requires not only the driver to fasten their seat belts but all passengers travelling within the vehicle too.

The new rules are brought in to increase safety and reduce injury in the event of an accident.

Thailand’s roads have one of the highest death rates in the world, so anything that aids the reduction of loss of live and injury has to be a step in the right direction.


The driver is responsible for ensure that passengers buckle up, whereas in other countries, it is often down to the individual if they are considered to be adults.

Drivers will be permitted 15 days to pay the fine but a further extension of 15 days will be applied upon a second written warning.

Most westerners will be accustomed to wearing a seat belt.


  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Kudos!
