“We are experiencing more and more foreign vehicles coming into the country with the AEC and if we use the old forms foreigners will not understand so English will be written underneath the Thai,” said Ekarak.

“In the new forms there will be a place to write the name and surname, the reason for the fine, the amount payable and other details ” he added.

The new translated forms will comprise those used roadside by officers, an electronic version and a larger A4 one that is sent through the post.

But the new forms have yet to be printed and would not come into force until about August. Police said that should be enough time to use up the 28,300 books of the Thai only forms that are still left.
