LDP’s “Effective Enforcement through Strengthening Road Safety Legislation” workshop

On 25 July 2018, AIP Foundation, in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety (BIGRS), held the “Effective Enforcement through Strengthening Road Safety Legislation” workshop at I Residence Hotel, Bangkok.

The morning sessions consisted of two lectures by LDP members Pol Maj Gen Pongson Kongtreekaew and Supa Chotngam. While Pol Maj Gen Pongson Kongtreekaew outlined enforcement gaps and challenges in the Road Traffic Act, B.E. 2522, Supa, who is the Department of Land Transport (DLT)’s Director of Legal Affairs Bureau, discussed specific changes that would be included in the new Land Transport Act [bringing together the Land Transport Act, B.E. 2522 and the Motor Vehicle Act, B.E. 2522 into one single Act].

In the afternoon, a world cafe was organised to allow participants to brainstorm ideas and come up with legislative solutions to close existing gaps to improve the quality of drivers and strengthen enforcement of motorcycle laws. The suggestions would be developed into a proposal to be submitted to the Ministry of Transport’s task force on motorcycle-related crashes. Stay tuned for more updates!

The Legal Development Program (LDP) is a collaboration between AIP Foundation Thailand and the World Health Organization (WHO) aiming to reduce road injuries and fatalities through legislative improvement. LDP is supported by the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety (BIGRS).
