According to the driving instruction website Zutobi, Thailand was recently classified as the second-most dangerous country in the world to drive in, right after South Africa.
On September 5, this year, the rule was published in the Royal Gazette and will take effect 120 days later. The requirements of Section 123 do not apply to drivers or passengers who, for medical reasons, cannot buckle their seatbelts.
To prevent injuries in the event of an accident, parents must make sure that their children buckle up for the whole trip. In Thailand, failing to use a seatbelt in the back seat of a vehicle will soon result in a 2,000 baht punishment. According to the Transport Ministry of Thailand, 32,190 road accidents were registered in 2020 and 2021, with pickup trucks being the primary cause of the majority of fatalities.

A fine of no more than 2,000 Baht will be imposed on anyone who disobeys.
