The driver of a passenger van caught on Facebook using his phone while the vehicle was in motion has been fined and lost his licence for a month.

The Land Transport Department on Wednesday charged Bangkok-Rayong van driver Wiroj Sarathit Bt2,000 for his negligence and took away his driving privileges temporarily.

He was also ordered to attend a three-hour training session on how public transportation drivers ought to behave.

One of his passengers on Tuesday posted a video showing Wiroj steering with his right hand while evidently reading the display of his phone in his left hand held against the wheel.
