After repeated failures, the Cambodian National Police has increased traffic fines by up to five times starting May 1 in an attempt to force motorists to obey and comply with the Traffic Law.
The announcement was made on April 28 by the National Police and increased fines on people driving without a helmet from $4 to $15. Drunk driving in vehicles will carry a $1,000 fine, up from $200 previously. Whereas, drivers of smaller passenger vehicles will be fined $500, up from $100, if caught drunk driving.
“The forces will implement this responsibly, equally, firmly, ethically and transparently with a polite and dignitary attitude,” said the police statement.
