Same Same! After the deadly days road carnage continues as normal

Daily News reported that following the "seven deadly days of New Year" the carnage on the Thai roads was continuing. 

 

They said that 43 died yesterday at the scene of accidents.

 

They cautioned that this was not an official figure of the number of deaths - it would rise as those who die in hospitals are added to the list. 

 

Thaivisa notes that the average daily death toll is usually at least 60 when all figures are collated. 

 

Daily News reported that at least 40 people had died at the scene on four days since the New Year "deadly" period ended. 

 

They showed a video of a pick-up crashing into a central divider warning particularly about guarding against falling asleep at the wheel.

Thaivisa notes that thousands of signs have gone up in Thailand that say in red and black lettering by the roadside: "Nguang - Jort Phak" (Sleepy - stop and rest). 

 

The large signs are in Thai only - not English.

 

The news media publish figures every day in an ongoing campaign to try and raise awareness about the situation on the Thai roads that are reckoned to be some of the most dangerous in the world if not the worst.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to make any difference. Like it's considered a normal thing.
