Chiang Mai – Drink Driving Campaign

With effect from 1st October 2055 the authorities in Chiang Mai are launching a major road safety campaign to reduce the incidence of drunk drivers on the city’s roads late at night. The first phase of this campaign has been running for a few weeks already and we understand has already netted some foreigners among the many offenders.
Alcohol Check Point
In this latest escalation of the campaign checkpoints will be operating at many major intersections around town, particularly between midnight and 3 a.m. Signs informing people of the new checks have been in place for a couple of weeks now. However, we note from what’s been seen around town the last few days that the stops are quite extensive and extend beyond the times stated above.

In line with the authorities policy of clamping down on seedy and late night entertainment in the city center access routes to the old town will be especially well policed. Especially around the moat, Thapae Gate, Thapae Road/Narrawat, Changklan and Loi Kroh roads. If you are planning to visit the Night Bazaar area or old city you would be well advised to leave the car/motorbike at home and take a tuk-tuk. Of course, this is sound advice at any time, not just when the Police are being more active. Much better to pay a few hundred Baht for transport than add to Chaing mai’s horrific road kill statistics.
