Revisit the pickup rule

The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), Department of Land Transport (DLT) and police must come up with a clear decision on pickup tray passengers soon or confusion will reign.

Initial talks between the DLT and police on Tuesday produced a few suggestions but no resolution. The general public are thus left in a limbo as the government earlier said the rule barring people from sitting in the rear space, or tray, of pickup trucks will be enforced after the Songkran holidays.

The holidays are over but nobody knows how long the grace period for the pickup tray rule will last or what kind of restrictions will be applied in its place.
