Well, I don't think they need a comparison with Covid 19.  If they get infected, can always blame on those those foreigners so it isn't their choice. With driving, it's their choice and they'll do what they d**n well want to...and blame it on road conditions. And those 'green grab' motorcyclists haven't don't care either.

Another "Campaign to raise awareness"? How about just confiscating everything that has more than one wheel?

oK   looking at stats  Thailand  drives  are  very very bad  and the Gov should be ashamed   to alow this to continue

However  USA  is not much better   they have terrible drivers too  40,000   killed last year  

Yet they have a very efficient  police force  and traffic  tickets  are worth   about as much  as Thailand  tourist industry 

 

So   what is the Answer  DRIVER EDUCTAION    AND ENFORCEMENT   TOGETHER  

 

Lose   your licence   go to prison  make it  hard 

 

Australia  to date  1,100   dead   on roads   smaller   population but  000,s  miles  of fast roads  

Drink drive AU   Prison 

Speed AU   3 weeks  wages

Speed  again  LOSE  licence  

 

Speed   again lose car 

 

Well  only  1.100   dead this year  AU  so far  

So I feel this system  works  

OHH   andAustralians  are excellent  trained drivers

When will the stores be closed, check points for intoxicated drivers, ban on alcohol sales, stop the flights with crazy foreign drivers, impose a curfew or any of the other crazy ideas to stop Covid that had 58 total deaths in Thailand.

I have always wondered why deaths that occur later in hospitals or even on the way to hospital are not included. 

Is there some strange reason for this?

Thailand is already in the top 3 of the worst nations in the world

for the road carnage, maybe they don't want to be far in front of

the others leading the course with worse numbers ?

Am I supposed to be surprised?? Has Thailand really got any idea to deal with these shocking statistics? So far - NOT
