How unbelievable that the draconian measures taken to protect the public against Covid-19, which were effective -- but the massively greater road deaths are just . . . ignored!

 

The Asian mindset is very confusing to us Westerners!

maybe one day, just maybe, someone may realise that it would help if the Thais actually learned to drive/ride, by making lessons compulsory, and having tests and regulations similare to the real world

Covid19 57 in 3 month and close the country down. 

Road toll 600 in one month. 

Not a f ing thing different. 

Carry on regardless.

That will still do nothing with no enforcement.

Wear a mask and covid19 limited to 57 dead. 

But put 26 million people out of work and close the country. 

 

Dont wear a helmet and drive like a dick..

About 60 dead every day.

And nothing else is done about it. 

This is a pandemic too.

Ignorance, stupidity and couldn't care less attitude.

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.

L

the main problem on Samui is more likely  foreign drivers

Absolutely agree...

 

At 6000 deaths for half of the year the average daily total is about 32 deaths per day, which is about half of the normal average of about 60 dead per day (as you mentioned).

 

I awaiting some true political genius to claim success in fighting the road deaths as the numbers have halved !!!!

The level of discussion on this topic is mind-bogglingly stultifying and mindless as ever....

 

So far, the posts seem to be falling into 5 predictable categories

 

1.     False Dichotomy - e.g. either Road Safety OR Covid

 

2.     Racist Thai remarks - “all Thai drivers are inherently dim/stupid/selfish/have no common sense”

 

3.     Irrelevant anecdotes - “I saw someone driving badly”

 

4.     Single issue solutions - “The problem is....Driving test/police/drink etc.

 

5.     Use of cynicism to hide ignorance - “nothings gonna change” “TIT”

 

 

No-one is showing even the slightest understanding of the problem

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

More a question of inactive brains among the population at large.

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

Yet I'm told that there's more cameras on Beach road pattaya than enough.

19 pedestrian crossings.

Enough recognition cameras to monitor every violation and book them if they wanted to do so.

Electronic tickets. 

 

But I suppose they don't get the tea money that way...

The stats will read..

 

Covid19 reduces road deaths by 50%...
