Bangkok will automatically start to charge red light tickets


New video surveillance systems and software to catch the fans of passing on the red light will work already on September 1

There are now 30 cameras installed at the crossroads of Bangkok.

Traffic Police Deputy Commander Paul Kol Kitty Ariyanon said that “everything is ready to go 100%” and the cameras are capable of catching the violators at any time of the day and in any weather conditions. All the cameras are connected to the “command center”, which processes the incoming information.

Automatic fines will now arrive at the post office, and according to Article 22 of the Traffic Act of 1979, the penalty will be 1,000 baht for each violation. The payment of the fines will be checked at the re-registration of vehicles, which takes place annually.
