On odd dates, from 7am to 7pm, drivers must park on the left (southern) side of the road.

Trucks with six wheels or more are also prohibited from driving along this stretch of the road – at any time.

“There will be no exceptions, even on weekends and public holidays,” Gen Teeraphol said in the statement.

“These restrictions will begin because the road is narrow with a lot of houses and shops along both sides of the road, and the road always has traffic jams during rush hours,” he added.
