Songkran carnage: Seven deadly days becomes 21 as 10% accident reduction targeted

So extend it from 7 days to 21 days, sounds like one bigger reason for an extended pi$$ up to me, with at least the doubling of deaths on the roads, another Thai genius idea with little thought gone into it, brilliant !

The longer the counting period for the road death toll, the more diluted the end number should be. However if you were to take UN estimates the Songkran period compares as favourably lower than the average over the other week's of the year.

I feel sorry to hear this.

I also lived at ISaan a long time ago but avoided buying or having anything that Thai people can just help themself to easily like this.

unfortunate that even if you catch them the result may not always be good or in your favour

Of course pilfering doesn't happen outside Thailand does it !!

Yes you are right.Why not expand the period to 365 days and hope for 5% less victims?

"Thaivisa notes that if past years are anything to go by somewhere between one thousand and two thousand  people are likely to lose their lives in that 21 day period. 

 

An average of about 70 people die on the nation's roads every day not just at Songkran. "

 

So over the 21 days the road death rate is about average.... ???

   According to those figures...no extra deaths over the Songkran period...just the same as all year round?

Dang beat me to it! 21 X 70 = 1,470... almost dead center twixt 1 & 2 thousand. These guys are genius level at accident prevention. Like "take this medicine and you'll be cured in a week. Don't take it and get well in 7 days"

Invoke special powers? What, like those of the members from The Avengers? Aren't you idiots tired of the moronic drone - year in, year out - about the 7 stupid days? Oh, now you've extended it to 21. How about adding 344 days to it?

It's the one after article 776, and the one before article 778, in other words, it's just another article 🙂

 

Wrong, it's this ...............

Article 777 is urging all parties concerned to pretend to do something. 

They may as well call it article 555 (hahaha).
