Thai Deputy Police Chief Inspects Traffic Chaos at Mo Chit and Central World, Orders Immediate Action


At 12:30 PM, on May 17th, 2024, Pol. Gen. Kitrat Panphet, the Deputy national police chief, performed a field inspection of traffic congestion issues at Mo Chit Bus Terminal in Chatuchak and Central World Shopping Center in Pathumwan, Bangkok.

Previously, the Governor of Bangkok and relevant Bangkok government agencies addressed the issue of tuk-tuks and taxis parking in front of the Central World shopping center.

Pol. Gen. Kitrat and relevant agencies visited Mo Chit Bus Terminal and Central World Shopping Center and discovered that a massive number of taxis were waiting for passengers and blocking traffic.

The issue reflects a significant lack of organization and disregard for traffic laws, remarked Pol. Gen. Kitrat.

As a result, it caused traffic congestion and inconvenience to other drivers although the Bangkok Government had previously set up a special lane especially for taxis and tuk tuks to pick passengers up.

In response to the traffic congestion in busy areas, Pol. Gen. Kitrat issued an order to police officers in their responsible areas to hold a meeting with relevant agencies including Bangkok representatives, the Transportation Department, and Mo Chit and Central World operators within a week to present possible solutions.
