    Now motorcyclists are banned from using flyovers, tunnels for crossing

    Now motorcyclists are banned from using flyovers, tunnels for crossing
    in General | April 1, 2016 11:17 am

    Bangkok traffic police have now begun to take tough action on motorcycles running on flyovers and in underpasses as the traffic law banning several types of vehicles using these crossings became effective yesterday.

    Most of the flyovers are already off limits to motorcycles.

    The problem that exists is that, in many cases, there is no through traffic at intersection level, making a rider take a detour down the cross street, then a U-turn back to the original road, to continue in the original direction of travel.

    complete nonsense.....
    First a motorbike with one person is the far better transport than the car with one person when you think of pollution, speed, congested streets.
    Second it is social....only the rich are allowed to use the good streets???? That is very wrong.
    Motorbikes and small vehicles should get an advantage.

    The flyover rule is nothing more than an easy money grab for cops. The plant themselves under a shady tree at the end of the flyover and snag motos as the cross over.

    Excuse me for being a bit off topic, but I have just remembered how trucks/lorries were not allowed on the streets of Bangkok during the day time. They came in at 4 am, allowing them just a short time to make deliveries and leave the city. I don't remember what time they had to leave.

    Does anyone know if this law is still in effect?

    There are restrictions on the entry of four and six-wheeled trucks in to the Greater Bangkok Area during peak hours (0600-0900 and 1600-2000 every day except public and school holidays). Restriction hours are longer for ten wheelers and larger trucks (0600-1000 and 1500-2100 every day except public and school holidays). Small cargo vehicles with fare weight not exceeding 1600 kg are exempted from the restrictions. These restrictions apply to moving vehicles, and trucks which are inside the city during the restricted hours must stop and stay parked during the restriction period.

    (I think I have also read somewhere that cement delivery trucks are excluded from the restrictions.)
