Thai road carnage: Monthly death toll already 616 - Year total well past 6,000

Recommended Posts

Although I sound like a broken record on this topic-the best guess by Asian Correspondent in 2015 was 80 fatalities per day.This is far more realistic than the whitewashed figures of the Gov't which derive theirs from Newton's 'Principia Mathematica' or some such tome..

 

There would be a slight trend downward over the last 3 months or so but they will be very enthusiastic in making up for lost time.

How do the Insurance companies cope with the number of claims for vehicles, personal injury and fatalities. Surely, this must affect premiums.

The death toll of accidents is much greater than the death toll of Covid-19. I hope the government realize this.

Forget it, they are interested only in their bank slips from Singapore.

Not sure there is a lot of relevance between road deaths & the virus.

An interesting fact is that I once asked a rural police patrol on a very busy stretch of Highway 1 "why do you not have any mufti cops on the road ?"

Answer : It infringes on human rights.  My  Answer : Bulls  t

Real reason: No funding for fuel

Yes, in my case the insurance company raised the premium from 14.000 to 17.000 THB, though I expected a no-claims bonus. T.I.T.

Why is nothing ever done to start to correct these abhorrent stats? 69 people in one day is utterly unbelievable. It is like a daily terrorist attack in its numbers. 

Work-shy, inept, self-serving "poo yais" will never be able to create a safe, regulated and policed driving environment.

No ridiculous liability payouts help keep the premiums low.

 

A motor accident quadraplegic might get a $10m payout in the USA, £1m in the UK, for example, not to forget the legal fees. Very different to what an accident victim might expect here in Thailand.

The death toll at the scene of accidents in Thailand in 2020 now stands at 6,313.

Yet this is tolerated by the government... while 58 deaths shuts the country down?
