Chon Buri Land Transport Office fined a Chon Buri-Rayong public transport van driver Bt10,000 and suspended his licence for 30 days after a passenger's Facebook post claimed the van took more passengers than the number of seats in the vehicle.

Following the Facebook post by Pahin Joe Tongma on the Monday incident at Nong Mon Market, Chon Buri Land Transport Office identified the van as being operated under Sukhumwit Transport Co Ltd and summoned driver Pipat Intharathud for questioning. 

He was fined Bt5,000 for failing to comply with the regulation that limits the number of passengers and Bt5,000 for failing to adhere to road safety rules. He also had his driver's licence suspended for 30 days.
