Eighteen Uber Taxi drivers were fined, and sent to attend attitude adjustment courses for three hours in one day after transport officials, police and soldiers launched a joint campaign to clamp down on private car providing taxi service without official license.
Of the 18 taxis caught yesterday for providing taxi service, 16 are private cars (black license plates), one new car (red license plate), and a service limousine.
They were fined 2,000 baht each for using private car to give taxi service without license, and 2,000 baht for not registering their cars as taxis.
All were also sent to attend attitude adjustment courses, and traffic laws for three hours.
Their driving backgrounds and traffic offences were also recorded in the department’s data base for use in revoking their driver license if they repeat the same offences.
