Anyone who thinks there is a single solution to road safety in Thailand is WRONG!

Apparently, this amount of deaths is more acceptible than having traffic laws and enforcement of them. 

It's called: population control of those suffering from "Darwinism!"

Well as Sweden was one of the first countries to drop the old 1960s road safety misconceptions, and now has one of the lowest casualty rates in the world I would have thought you knew the solution

If you are referring the theory of evolution, then through natural selection, deaths on the road presumably would be progressively be eliminated. As there is no sign of this happening then your theory is unsustainable and falls flat.

I'm beginning to think that the Thai Travel Safety dept. is run by all the people transferred to an Inactive post

There is not such a thing as an inactive post in the Thai police, they are all inactive, from the generals with their fancy ranks and uniforms covered in bling, to the officers standing at the school gates watching the underage children riding past on their parents motorbikes.

Lockdown for ALL vehicles. Beer kills, vehicles do NOT.

Had Thailand NOT shutdown, the death rate would be 50 000 odd

Even if that unsubstantiated wild speculation were true,that quoted number would definitely be achieved on the roads within 2 years...and EVERY subsequent 2 years ad infinitum.

It's not only the "zero ability" to drive a vehicle due to no real schools and no real driver tests, there is another dimension to it too. Thais can be extremely aggressive. And when sitting in a car they use that car as a weapon (many times they even have a gun inside the car and shoot you if you are unlucky). Overtake a Thai or blow the horn, he will get immediately super angry and will chase or shoot you to give revenge... childish idiot behaviour...  This high blood behaviour maybe combined with alcohol or drugs makes the streets really dangerous.

 

Then add the bad road conditions and the bad emergency reponse to it.

 

In Europe an aggressivd driver loses license, car and freedom. Law enforcement generally works to safeguard other from aggressive idiots on the roads...in Thailand they take him to the police station where he cries with tears in his eyes "I am vely solly..." and doon he can buy himself out of jail no matter how many he has killed...

Make uo your mind!

 

World averae for alcool related road deaths is about 22%. Thailand's estimates range from 25 to 40 at certain times of year - so certainly at least 60% of accidents are NOT caused be "beer"

With Thai peoples riding 1,2,3,4 UP no helmets, that is alive and well on Koh Samui. Young lunitics blasting down the main road on the wrong side of the road doing 80 to 100kph in a 50 zone NO HELMET! They are your people potentially puting themselves in harms way and you do not give a damn to enforce the road rules, what do you expect.

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

They haven't got the brains to organise a police force to get out on the roads and pull all the drunken speedmerchants in. But they sure know how to make up laws to control the masses.

It does not take much brains to set up curfew times or ban alcohol.
