At least 25 unofficial motorcycle taxi operators were arrested Friday at BTS Mo Chit.
They were fined 2,000 baht and their vehicles were impounded within seven days, according to Kosit Eimla-or, head of Land Transportation Department’s Inspection Section.
If they repeat the crime, Kosit said, they will lose their driver’s licenses.
Singapore-based Grab and California-based Uber are both illegal in Thailand, according to the authorities. While the government says they are not properly registered with the Land Transport Department, the services continue to operate despite being ordered last year to halt. Dozens of drivers have since been arrested for ignoring the ban.
