PATTAYA:--Three motorists died in the Pattaya area during Songkran’s “seven dangerous days” on the roads.

 

Deputy District Chief Chawat Theptat said all three fatalities reported April 11-17 involved motorbikes, including a foreign driver.

 

The unidentified foreigner had his arm crushed by a bus and later died at the hospital. Two Thais died in separate accidents, one on Thepprasit Soi 5/1, where the driver ran into a utility pole, and the second in a collision with a car at the Rong Mai Keed U-turn. The driver was not wearing a helmet.

 

Overall in Chonburi, authorities reported 17 major accidents with nine killed and nine injured. Speeding and not wearing helmets contributed to 65.5 percent of the injuries and deaths.

One can only think... figures "massaged"? Did Pattaya shrink in the wash (Songkran)???

 

Or was Pattaya gridlocked and traffic just crawled about???
