The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) is planning to install AI-assisted traffic cameras at over 200 intersections across the city to help crack down on traffic violations.
Deputy governor Wisanu Subsompon said cameras will be tested at 20 major intersections this month. Already active at Arun Amarin and Wong Sawang intersections, the rest will be activated by the end of the month.
The Traffic and Transport Department is providing the cameras, which can take photos of number plates and drivers committing offenses.
Wisanu said these cameras will be placed optimally to capture violations, with fines ranging from 2,000-5,000 baht.
Tickets will be sent to offenders’ registered addresses. Not only that, they’ll also keep an eye out for violations on footpaths near roads to ensure pedestrian safety.
The BMA is also in talks with the Royal Thai Police to have them take control of City Hall’s traffic operation centre and streamline enforcement and fine collection.
