1,800 Bangkok vans to be banned from road

About 1,800 vans will have to stop taking passengers at the end of this month after being registered for more than 10 years, a transport committee said.

 

The committee headed by Col Sombat Thanyawan, deputy commander of the Second Cavalry Division, held a meeting on Thursday and reaffirmed its decision to have operators stop using 10-year-old vans.

The van operators have called on the committee to be lenient and extend the limit to 15 years.

But the committee decided that after a decade, a van becomes dangerous for passengers, Sombat said.
