A tuk-tuk driver has been fined 2,500 baht and had his driver’s license suspended for 90 days after overcharging four Japanese tourists. The incident occurred on May 13, when the driver charged the tourists 6,000 baht for a short trip from Sukhumvit Soi 18 to Thaniya Plaza in the Silom area.

One of the tourists detailed the overcharging on social media, sparking widespread criticism of the driver, identified as Phumiret. The Land Transport Department launched an investigation into the matter, focusing on the ownership and license number of the tuk-tuk involved. They were able to trace and summon the driver for questioning.

During the inquiry, Phumiret admitted to overcharging, citing heavy rain as his justification. As a result, the department imposed a 2,000 baht fine for the overcharging and an additional 500 baht fine for improper attire. Additionally, his driver’s license was suspended for 90 days, and he was mandated to attend a three-hour public service course.

In attendance at the disciplinary hearing were several officials from the Land Transport Department, underscoring the seriousness with which the department treats such infractions. The case highlights ongoing efforts to regulate and maintain fair practices within the transport sector.
