There never are and never have been. If the cops, whose duty it is to uphold the law could get out there and actually stop every speeding driver and red light runner they might start to get somew

Just as well. Thais crash into enough concrete things already...

Just start collecting data to know where/what to target and stop with all the hot air. 1)  Count all deaths, not just at the scene, but any death due to an accident.   All deaths to peo

Good to see they're on it! Little or no idea! 🙄

The 77kaoded report said nothing like that.
 

That was the thaivisa take on it all. Carefully worded.

Well theres a surprise, no concrete measures reported, there never are, its all wind and p++s.

Same as every time before lots of useless talk, but no action.

They haven't as yet formed a committee......that's to follow.

'Almost no concrete measures were reported by 77kaoded in a flimsy report.'

 

I can solve that for them.

1. Proper driving test.

2. Proper policing.

 

A quick look at YouTube should provide examples of both from countries where life is important. They don't even need to get out of bed to do that.

Thais wearing masks is a success, wearing a helmet seems to be getting unpopular again. 

painting lines on the road is futile. 

so true, was the taking kids to school  was  behind a scooter the rider who was not wearing a helmet  approaching a police check bike gets waved  through and I get stopped. what the hell  is going on,  hello it`s a check point  .

Coming on the heels of the announcements about the raising of the speed limit to 120kph, I presume the target is being revised upwards?

As I understand it, the secret to happiness is to have lower expectations. The Thai government has always made me happy in that regard.

why even bother. most police from back home would have an aneurysm within 5 minutes of being on the roads here from the horrors they saw. they wouldn't even know where to begin. 

 

it's the mindset of thai people that's the problem. make all the laws and announcements you want. it means nothing. 

I didn't have an aneurysm and turned down an offer to be a foreign volunteer at the local "cop shop". The lack of traffic enforcement is both laughable and pathetic, much like these committee meetings.

All deaths to people without a license

All deaths to underage drivers 

All deaths due to people involve not having lights on or wrong lights (no red lights in rear)

All deaths due to people driving the wrong way 

All deaths due to small bikes (less than 400 cc) and all big bikes

All deaths due to no helmets

All deaths with > 2 people on motorbike

All deaths involving u-turns

Just a start but add more categories ... 

You think too mutt

Vast vast majority, like 95% of the deaths are caused by reckless motorcycle riders.  I'm driving every day and am constantly dodging bikes zipping in front, behind, to the idea of me, making restless passes.  I feel like I am constantly coddling little boys on dangerous bikes.
