Fewer accidents, but death toll up this year

Though the number of road accidents is lower this year compared to the “seven dangerous days” last year, drunk driving and speeding remain the key contributing factors in crashes and account for most of the arrests, Interior Minister Anupong Paojinda said on Wednesday.

Anupong made this remark before the Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department’s Road Safety Centre (Thai RSC) announced a tally of 410 deaths and 3,516 injuries in 3,425 road accidents in the first six of the holiday period’s “seven dangerous days”.

General Anupong said additional measures will be discussed to reduce the loss of life stemming from these factors, and more analysis will be done on hazardous highways, secondary roads and periods of the day. “Agencies will then have to assess whether the new measures are sufficient to lower the death toll or whether even more measures are needed, such as promoting driver discipline or introducing harsher punishments,” he said.
