Thai caption: Campaign to Lower Deaths on the Roads - 18th July 2019 - 40 dead at the scene

 

Daily News reported that the carnage continues on the Thai Roads. 

 

This month alone has claimed 645 lives so far with 40 dying yesterday.

 

Since the start of the year the total is 8,220.

 

Daily News is running a campaign to raise awareness. They caution that the statistics are just for those that die at the scene of accidents. 

 

The actually death toll is believed to be around 50% higher when all stats are reported and when deaths at hospitals are taken into consideration.

An anti drink driving activist recently put the toll at about 24,000 to 26,000 a year, Thaivisa notes. 

 

Yesterday 3 people were killed and six injured when a Nissan Navara carrying 9 workers in the back crashed into an 18 wheel truck parked on the road leading into Chantaburi in Muang district, eastern Thailand. 

 

The driver blamed the rain, a faulty steering wheel and his brakes.

I think the main problem is that from what i have seen driving here for the last 13 years ,if the average driver had another brain cell they would be a plant .

virtually every time we go out on the roads we have to swerve or brake suddenly to avoid accidents with the idiots who ignore the road rules and ignore other cars/bikes so they just do as they please,  then you have no police on the roads to even try to enforce the rules. If they want to fix this they need to put police on the roads and pull all the idiots over, fine and seize cars as this is the only thing thais understand, money. Of course the pathetic driving instructions they get doesnt help either, a few hours driving in an enclosed area with no traffic then a short drive in traffic, a couple of hours only learning the questions with an immediate test and you have a licence, our daughter got her licence inside 4 days and she is absolutely hopeless, I refuse to let her drive our car because she has no idea what to do.

so far with 40 dying yesterday.

About the same number of deaths in Paris, including the ring road that goes around the city for 36 km.
except that it is not a day but a year ...

The real figs including people who die afterwards is about 100 per day, so these figs are way under.

More like 15-20k
