A crackdown on motorists who drive the wrong way down a one-way street is now under-way around Chonburi Province and for those who are caught a maximum jail sentence of 6 months can be imposed. Already cases have been through the Courts and these sentences are being given out. Khun Komsan, the Governor of Chonburi chaired a meeting of Police Officers at the Provincial Police Headquarters in Chonburi City on Wednesday to confirm the crackdown. He requested that all Police Stations should enforce the law to its fullest extent in relation to drivers who are caught driving the wrong way down a carriageway or one-way street. A total of 3,160 road accidents were dealt with by Police around the Province from January to July of this year and the Governor wants this figure to reduce and has identified drivers who drive against the normal flow of traffic as the main causes of accidents. All Thai and Foreign car, pick-up and motorbike drivers in Pattaya should be aware of this and understand that Prison sentences are being given out for those who are caught driving against the flow of traffic.
