A national police spokesman has given figures that show well over 300,000 people have broken the law on the Thai roads in the first three days of New Year.

INN news reported Krissana Pattanajaroen as saying that figures in ten main offences from December 28th to 30th showed there were 334,361 offences up 42,275 on the same period last year.

The top three were:

2. No licence: 94,453 offences – up 13%

3. No seatbelt: 43,309 offences – up 2.25%

Drink driving offences came in at number 8 with 9,736 offences up by 3,147 or 47.7% on last year.

Krissana passed on national police chief Jakthip Chaijinda’s entreaty for the Thai public to follow the law and assured the nation of strict enforcement at 2,010 checkpoints nationwide.
