Tranffic police plan New Year taxi fines

Phnom Penh Municipal Traffic Police distributed leaflets to taxi drivers ahead of this week’s Khmer New Year holiday, warning that drivers face fines if they overload their vehicles with passengers. Chev Hak, Phnom Penh deputy traffic police chief, said officers handed out leaflets to all taxi drivers in the capital on April 6 following an order from National Police. “We still see taxis putting more people in their cars; they must know it violates the Traffic Law,” he said. “If we catch them doing this, we will ask them to drop off the overloaded passengers and fine them.” Drivers who overload their cars are liable for fines of up to 300,000 riels (around US$72).
