Traffic fines: New system begins Sunday 17th December
The head of the new Police Ticket Management system has said that from Sunday people can begin paying traffic fines via bank and ATM machines nationwide.
Ekkarak Limsangkat said that each ticket will have a bar-code and a space to itemize the offence. This will no longer be completed in handwriting. Tickets will be in English as well as Thai.
Fines can be paid at Krung Thai Bank branches or ATMs in all 77 provinces. The KTB application on mobile phones can also be used.
Outlets displaying the “PTM” symbol can also be used though exactly what these are were not specified in the Daily News report.
Motorists who receive fines must wait two days from the issuing of the ticket before paying it. This is so that the police have time to enter it on the system.
Thereafter the fine must be paid within seven days.
You can still pay at police stations in which case you do not need to wait two days.
Fines where licenses have been confiscated have to be paid at the station concerned.
A 20 baht fee will be levied on fines paid through Krung Thai Bank.
