ABSTRACT

        Fine under The Land Traffic Act of B.E. 2522 is set the maximum and minimum rate base on Fixed Sum System. This system has a wide range between maximum rate and minimum rate to provide the officials to set a fine rate at his discretion. In same nature of the offence which is very serious or punishable with imprisonment, the officials may exercise their discretion to set the fine. This is an essential problem causes by a wrongful exercise of the discretion. Therefore, this thesis would study more on the discretion of the officials to fine under The Land Traffic Act of B.E. 2522.From the study, there was found that the discretion of the officials to fine was not suitable and had no certain rule, and eventually it caused to the corruption of the officials. Thus, I, as a researcher, would like to propose some recommendation for this problem. I believe that the discretion of the officials to fine should be modified; moreover, there should have more measures to deal with the traffic violation under The Land Traffic Act of B.E. 2522 in order to set the fine more clearly to the defendant and to reach the objective of the law and the punishment.
