Then stop trying to find new and exciting ways to kill your tourists.

 

And stop putting band aids on everything.

 

Needs to a total rework with totally different approaches and more professional staff involved and serious regular checking of everything.

 

Plus an outside body responsible for a regular 'secret shopper customers' activity on all of the various transport vehicles / systems to quickly report all transgressions to an outside body who in turn order changes, repairs etc.

 

If there are no negative reports then sack both the secret shopper staff and sack and prosecute their supervisor. Start again.

 

And very serious mandatory punishments through a court system, not from the police.

And Checking to see if the driver has got any YABA On his person.....

Drug & alcohol checks should be an ongoing spot check throughout the year for all public transportation

Incredible. 

 

It shouldn't be about tourists only. It should also be about the 100s or 1000s of Thais who die in these things each year. And until a real approach to road safety is implemented nationwide nothing will change. 

 

As usual it is just a press release with no substance that is 'urging all parties' to do nothing. The exact same thing will be released next year.

 

Thailand, the twilight zone.

As we saw from the latest post of a mini-van driver texting as he merrily drives down the road.

It's the drivers who need to be educated, not the public by some half-hearted promise!

Oh...I think, I never heard that one before!

I am sure, there is a well worked out plan up for discussion, which will perfectly keep in mind the safety of foreign tourists, over the quick and easy baht!

This will work out just fine, I am 100% sure!

 

Excuse me, while I just walk over to the window, to wait for a flying pig...

So the government is going to ban all motorised transport.  :whistling:

At least the old buffalo pulling a cart knows where to go, and when its time to stop  :wai:
