Using Mobile Phones While Driving to Be Banned on Thai Motorists

Joining 21 countries including Denmark, Japan and Singapore, Thai cabinet has approved ban on motorists using mobile phones on July 10, 2007 with aim to reduce traffic accidents.
“The cabinet banned motorists from using mobile phones, but not hands-free and other such equipment,” spokesman Chodechai Suwanaporn said, adding that drivers can always stop the car and pull over if they wanted a chat.
The draft Land Traffic Act will be submitted to parliament soon and if passed, law breakers would face fines of up to 1,000 baht.
