Traffic Laws to be Enforced in Cambodia
Previously in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, the only reason a police would stop and fine a motorist was if their motorbike didn't have rear view mirrors, or if the motorbike driver wasn't wearing a helmet.
Starting Monday, police will also fining people for driving without a license (2% of drivers in Cambodia have license). Those caught driving without a license will be charged 50$ or two months in jail.
There will also be some drunken driving and speeding checkpoints. Those caught driving drunk will be taken to a police station where they will be held until sober enough to drive home. Drivers caught speeding will face fines.
