New bar-coded traffic tickets start today around Thailand

If you get caught without a driving licence, infringing road rules or not wearing a helmet from today, you might be getting one of these.

Thailand’s traffic police are now issuing E-traffic tickets for traffic violations from today. You’ll be able to pay the fines online two days after the issue of the ticket.

Commander of the Special Branch Police Division 3, Police Maj-Gen Akarak Limsangkas, says the scheme starts today and that E-traffic tickets are being sent to police stations in all 77 provinces across the country including Phuket.

The new E-traffic tickets come with bar-codes which will allow police to track payments so that they can match infringements with the new points system which starts next month. By linking the new system with the Department of Land Transport system, annual registration fees won’t be able to be paid if there are outstanding fines from traffic violations.

The tickets are in both Thai and English language and allow police to tick off the infringements rather than writing everything out in long-hand.

Payments will be able to be made at any Krung Thai bank or via the bank’s ATMs. There’s also an App called “KTB net bank” that can be used.

He said payment is possible two days after the violation because it needs the time for the police to load information in the issued e-traffic tickets to the PTM system first. Police say violators will still be able to pay on the spot or at police stations without having to wait for two days to pay online.

There will be a fee of 20 baht if people choose to pay online.
