Motorcycles to face up to 200 baht “pollution tax”

In a move that would anger motorcyclists the excise department are mulling an idea to charge a special pollution tax hike on bikes.

Thai Rath said that if the measures were introduced riders could me made to shell out up to 200 baht each.

Excise chief Krisada Jeenawijarana said that cars had been subjected to such tax before and it was a question of protecting the environment and general public.

But the time had to be right before such an initiative was introduced. He said that all bikes over 50,000 baht in value might be subject to the new tax of 150-200 baht per vehicle.

The message must be if you damage the environment there is a cost to pay, said Krisada.
