Police has extended the no parking policy on 30 more of Bangkok roads in an attempt to solve the city's notorious traffic gridlocks.

The new order will go into effect on November 1st, according to Pol. Maj. Gen. Jirasan Kaewsaeng-ek, Traffic Police commander.

10 heavily congested roads have been designated as no parking zones since mid-October. According to police, the feedback from Bangkok residents is good since the measures have effectively reduced traffic congestion.

Among the thirty roads are Samsen, Pracharat1, Prachacheun, Navamindra, Yaowarat, Silom and Narathiwat Ratchanakarindra.

Drivers violating the order will have their cars towed to a nearby police station, where they have to pay hefty fines before they can take their vehicles back.
