Daily News reported that 73 people were reported killed on Thai roads on Tuesday. 
 
They cautioned that this figure was likely to rise when all reports are in. Besides this is just the death toll from those that die at the scene. 
 
Those that die on the way to hospital or in hospital are counted separately. 
 
Tuesday's death toll brought the number of at-the-scene fatalities this month to 597.
 
The total for the year to date is now 12,715.

The reality regarding the death toll is that the figures are likely to be twice as bad. It has been admitted by senior government figures that the death toll is in excess of 20,000 annually. 
 
Many campaigners put it at between 24,000 and 26,000 a year. 
 
Daily News report the carnage daily along with helpful tips on driving.

It’s natural selection. 
 

We all know there’s no law enforcement and Thais don’t care if they live or die, so leave them to it. 

But if your living here? ( I no longer do but sure watch out when we visit)

No: 1 tip should be to get rid of all amulets in their cars. THEY DO NOT WORK!
