New Road Fines Causes Heated Spats on Cambodia’s Streets

The arrest of a few drivers for not being able to pay the newly-enforced traffic fines has resulted in verbal spats between police officers and motorists and even the arrest of a few drivers in Svay Rieng province.

The National Police have started implementing new fines for almost all traffic and road safety violations since May 1, including higher fines for driving without a license or registration, drunk driving and not having rear view mirrors or license plates.

Social media posts show verbal spats between motorists and police officers across the country, in some cases vehicles have been confiscated and in more extreme instances people were arrested for not being able to pay these higher fines.
