Pol. Lt. Gen. Natthorn said police are in the process of linking traffic offences to a demerit point system, which authorities would consider when renewing a driver’s license. He said it is unclear when the new system would be introduced.

According to the assistant police chief, each driver would have a full 12 points. If all the points are deducted, the offenders would have their licenses suspended for 90 days.
