'A benefit of bad traffic is that you're less able to drive fast enough to be killed in an accident.'

His words, not mine. 😏🤐

PM clueless, 20 years program?  Awards for the Clueless then 9th by W. H. O. 

 

The honor system = Cooperation hasn't work in 20 years not going to work now you can't fix it Same as you didn't fix the traffic in Bangkok in 30 days. 

 

You can't fix using the same solution from the same waste  basket you need to hand the problem to someone who isn't Thai and that includes the leadership in W. H. O. Who are part of the problem.

“Of course, I know the problem and how to solve it. But it won’t work 100% because of a lack of public cooperation,” he added.

Just like Thaksin knew how to solve the traffic problem within six months when he was a candidate, and Aswin knew how to solve the flooding problem (but only after he was no longer governor). Everyone has a secret cunning plan when they're running for office, but somehow those plans are forgotten once they're in power.

Quite possibly, but there is a big crack in the loop.

It basically comes down to education and enforcement. You need to educate the public how to drive properly then you need to enforce any legislation to penalise offenders. If the press reports the results of the enforcement the public should get the message about driving properly.

However, there appears to be no way of educating the public. Even the video shown when you renew your licence does not relate to motorcycle drivers. Need I say anything about the police enforcing the laws??!!

The same problem as all the "elected" PM's .

Unable or unwilling to break into the total lack of meaningful control by  RTP.

It will never change until there is a sufficient enough deterrent by the RTP to start obeying the existing laws. It is called being indolent

It might help if the police were to do their job. Police road check points in our area begin after school kids are in class. They pack up before the students leave school........ I wonder why ?

Difficult to control.  Especially when you are dealing with a large number of people that only care about themselves.  And could care less about others.

Law enforcement yes, but  the police are Thai  they have as much knowledge  of the Highway code   as the general public which is close to Nil,  so how can they enforce something they know nothing of,      they drive ride dangerously the same as 99% of the others, and they see no wrong in it, and being Thai they surely cannot be told how... educate those idiots who  pass   you at  the driving test center, then start on the police... then  lets see...

The goal is to cut fatalities from traffic accidents to 12 persons per 100,000 population by 2027 and achieve the Vision Zero target by 2050.

Off course they can achieve it, by 2050 Bangkok will be underwater, so no more road accident ... (https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/1785569/revised-forecast-puts-bangkok-underwater-by-2050) ... 😜
