BMA removes totalled cars in Bang Rak, urges Bangkokians to keep eye out for more


The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) on Thursday removed wrecked cars from under the expressway in Bang Rak district as part of its operation to ease traffic jams and ensure people’s safety.

Deputy Bangkok Governor Sakontee Pattiyakul said BMA had kicked off the operation in February and has removed 800 wrecked cars so far.

“Five wrecked cars seized by Yannawa police more than a decade ago were finally taken to an auto wreck centre in Nong Khaem district today,” he said. “There are still 42 wrecked cars that need to be removed from Bangkok roads.”

“Those who inform the city authorities will receive half of the fine taken from the wrecked car’s owner,” he added.
