Road deaths rise to 239 after 4 days of New Year's danger period

The accumulated death toll rose to 239 on Sunday, the fourth day of the "seven dangerous days" of New Year's holiday travel, with Si Sa Ket and Ubon Ratchathani recording the most deaths.

A total of 239 people died and 2,500 were injured in 2,308 road accidents across the country from Dec 28-31, Tourism and Sports Minister Weerasak Kowsurat said on Monday.

On Dec 31 alone, a total of 65 people were killed and 714 injured in 678 road accidents nationwide.

The most common cause of the fatalities was determined to be drink-drinking (48.67%), followed by speeding (26.40%). Most accidents involved motorcycles (80.26%), followed by pickup trucks (6.39%), he said, citing a report from the Road Safety Directing Centre.

The highest number of road accidents over the past four days - 86 - was reported in Chiang Mai.

Si Sa Ket and Ubon Ratchathani recorded the highest number of deaths at 11 each, while Buri Ram had the highest number of injuries at 89. Thirteen provinces reported no deaths or injuries, he added.

Despite the grisly body count, the statistics actually show an improvement over the same period one year ago. According to the Road Safety Directing Center, there were 14.6% fewer deaths, 11.7% fewer injuries and 11.1% fewer accidents from Dec 28-31 2017 than during the same period the previous year .

Police set up 2,005 checkpoints across the country during Dec 28-31 and stopped 779,130 vehicles for road-safety checks. A total of 138,176 motorists were cited for traffic law violations, including 40,788 motorcycle riders without crash helmets and 38,291 drivers without driving licences, the minister said.

Re: 61 people killed EVERY DAY - Road deaths rise to 317 after 5 days

thai media innnews.co.th report that well over 300,000 people have broken the law on the Thai roads in the first three days of New Year. Drink driving offences with 9,736 offences up by 3,147 or 47.7% on last year. nearly 50% more drunks, which of course might of been that more people were checked this year.

Records say the leading causes of accidents have been drunk driving, speeding and cutting off other vehicles and there's me thinking it might of been not actively enforcing the law.

Probationary sentences for 3,100 drunk-driving offenders  nationmultimedia.com

The courts handed down probationary sentences in more than 3,000 cases of drunk-driving during five days of the New Year holiday period.

There were 3,517 cases in total of traffic law violations for which the courts ordered probation as punishment from December 28 to January 1, with 3,105 cases or 88 per cent of them involving cases of drinking and driving, Probation Department director-general Prasan Mahaleetrakul said on Tuesday.

Forty-four of the remaining cases concerned reckless driving, while the other 268 were for a wide range of other traffic offences. Only one of them was for speeding.

Prasan also said that the top five provinces for drunk-driving offences over the holiday period were Surin, with 319 cases, Bangkok (288), Sakhon Nakhon (201), Nonthaburi (182) and Ubon Ratchathani (163).

“Driving while drunk is a serious offence internationally, and many countries have started to share information about offenders and ban them from entering their countries. Moreover, some countries have also increased penalties for this offence, because drinking and driving is regarded as a threat to society,” he added.

A total of 423 people were killed and 4,003 were injured during  the “Seven Dangerous Day” safety driving campaign described as the most dangerous period of the long New Year holidays from December 28 – January 3.

Deputy Interior Minister Suthee Markbun as chairman of the Road Safety Centre said a total of 3,841 traffic cases were reported during the period running from December 28 until January 3 or yesterday.

Only yesterday alone, 40 people have died and 402 other were injured in 386 fatal road accidents on highways and roads nationwide, he said.

In total, he said 423 died and 4,005 injured in 7-day safety driving campaign.

He said the fatality figure represented a 11.5% drop from last year’s seven day campaign, and 2% decrease in traffic accident cases.

Nakhon Ratchasima had the highest accumulated deaths of 17 people, he said.

Main causes of fatal road accidents are drink driving, 43.66%, and speeding 25.23%.

Motorcycle is the vehicle that involved in most accidents, 78.91%, and pickup truck, 6.84

Re: 61 people killed EVERY DAY - Traffic authorities claim success

So the traffic authorities claim success giving accomplishment to strict law enforcement during the New Year period. i wonder if the grieving families would agree. nationmultimedia.com reports the accident count reduced by 2 per cent and the death rate decreased by 11.5 per cent. But arrests for dangerous driving and traffic-law offences sharply increased.

Traffic authorities claim success as deaths down 11%



On the final day of the monitoring period on Wednesday, 386 accidents occurred, killing 40 people and injuring 402 others.

 However, Sirichan said the higher arrest rate contributed to behavioural adjustment and encouraged drivers to be more careful and respect traffic laws when they were behind the wheel. She also added that 245,356 people had been prosecuted for driving dangerously, 141,327 of whom were on motorcycles and the other 104,209 in cars.

Officers temporarily seized 6,326 vehicles, of which 4,823 were motorcycles and 1,503 were cars. A total of 38,190 driving licences were also confiscated.

Dr Thanapong Jinvong of the Road Safety Policy Foundation said authorities had progressed in the right direction to promote road safety by strictly enforcing traffic laws.

However, Thanapong said officers could further improve their performance in preventing accidents by increasing the penalty for dangerous driving, especially drunk driving.

“We have found that the arrest rate for drunk driving case has risen by 49 per cent, which made the roads safer,” he said.

However, he cited a poll finding that 74 per

 cent of respondents had said they had seen drunk people driving, so the problem remained serious.

He added that officers had to strictly enforce traffic laws throughout the year to make people afraid of the consequences of drunk driving, as Thailand’s roads were still the most dangerous in the world and drunk driving remained a prominent factor in road accidents throughout the year.

look at the picture above,how can you possibly clam success.they have to look like there plan worked i suppose.
is it time to stop looking at one 7 day period per year and start looking at yearly statistics. 423 in 7 days is 60 day which is the same as everyday of last year.

what do you believe,one article,a rise in drunk drivers,another,traffic deaths are down. so there's your answer
ignorance does not help your post one bit but it probably says an awful lot about you.
