Members of the Legal Development Program (LDP) conducted a brainstorming meeting for Thai government officials that focused on developing ideas for new speeding legislation and enforcement efforts. The group discussed setting speed limits, installing signage, and developing punishments for violating laws. It also created a timeline and code of conduct for improving speeding law enforcement in the country.
Mr. Kamol Buranapong, Deputy Director-General of the Department of Land Transport and a LDP member, chaired the meeting. He was joined by representatives from the Traffic Police Division of the Royal Thai Police, the Department of Highways, the Department of Rural Roads, Road Safety Group Thailand, and fellow program participants.
The LDP is a partnership among AIP Foundation, the World Health Organization, and Bloomberg Philanthropies. It aims to build the capacities of its members to improve road safety laws in Thailand through the media and advocacy.
