Bangkok officials ban U-turns on Asoke Montri Road

Sorry, drivers looking to cut corners and save time: the heady days of making random U-turns on Asoke Montri Road are over.

From Feb. 1, cops will put up traffic barriers along the entire road to enforce the U-turn ban, Khaosod English reported.

Drivers making U-turns on the road stretching from Sukhumvit to Rama IX have been blamed for adding to the frequent traffic jams in the busy area.

Officials said drivers heading north towards Rama IX could still make U-turns near the Makkasan Airport Rail Link Station, and those coming in from the Asoke-Phetchaburi intersection could still turn left or right onto Sukhumvit Road.

Let’s hope this means fewer idiots on the road like this Porsche prick.
