Unfortunately, is often alcohol involved when people drive to a funeral.

 

   That doesn't create better drivers. It's so sad to read these news of people who wanted to attend another funeral and got killed on the way.

 

I remember a horror crash in our province where seven or eight got killed by a train, Also on their way to a funeral.

 

   Does the big P even understand what'[s going on here and how to solve the problem(s)? I pretty much doubt it.

Agree with you, the other hidden number is that for every death on the roads another 10 (some research suggests up to 30) are seriously injured.

The cost of death to the country is massive but the cost of looking after the seriously injured is never discussed here to my knowledge.

The long term effects on all involved is incalculable.

the irony 

And no copper in the vicinity, plus no lead as to the possible cause of accident other than a golden opportunity to get there as fast as possible 😞

The common denominators are fatigue coupled with distraction.

The road safety eggsperts at Land Transport Thailand haven't heard of the dangers of fatigue or distraction yet.

We're getting as desensitized towards car crashes in Thailand as we are towards mass shootings in America.

 

I was going to write exactly the same thing. Both keep happening over and over and over, with absolutely zero response.
