A Twitter user had exposed the fight of drivers on routes 56 and 40 that ply the capital. 

“Bankkamikunkai” said that after a spell of driving in which the drivers had tried to cut each other up on the roads a driver of one minibus had waited for the arrival of another outside Big C on Issaraphap Road. 

A battle ensued with fed up passengers looking on and a big traffic jam building up. 

The Bangkok Mass Transport Authority moved swiftly. Three drivers were immediately suspended from today until Thursday. Their vehicles were also taken off the road for the same time period and the two operators were fined 5,000 baht each. 

The operators were ordered to send their drivers to BMTA HQ this morning to explain themselves and face further fines.
