The Ministry of the Interior (MOI) and the Ministry of Transportation and Communication (MOTC) will be jointly conducting road traffic enforcement measures across the nation, starting from 1st September for a month, in response to increased fatalities of road accidents in the first half of this year.
The foci of the enforcement measures include but are not limited to ‘failing to yield pedestrians on a pedestrian crosswalk’, ‘making a turn fail to stop and yield pedestrians to cross where pedestrian crossing is not prohibited’, ‘running a red light or make a right turn during a red light’, ‘failing to walk within a designated sidewalk or on the side of a road’ and ‘failing to follow the instructions of signs, markings, signals, or those given by police.’
The National Police Agency (NPA) urges the general public to respect the rights of pedestrians, for which drivers are expected to slow down or yield pedestrians while driving or making a turn. Pedestrians, nonetheless, are expected to walk on the designated areas, e.g. pedestrian crosswalk, follow the signs, markings, signals and the directions of the officers, without passing through vehicle lanes in violation of regulations.
