INN reported that 396 people have died at the scene of accidents since the start of February.

 

Quoting the head of the Anti Drink Driving Foundation Dr Thaejing Siripanich they said that 33 people died on Saturday.

 

This brought the total since January 1st to 1,243 dead.

 

Thaivisa notes that the figure is expected to rise significantly when those who succumb to injuries in hospitals is added to the figures and districts that report late announce their figures.

 

Experience shows that the figure could be up to double what is reported as "death at the scene".

That figure is too low. Those must be just the offending drivers who didn't flee the scene.

396 people who died at the scene does not include those that died later from their injuries in the ambulance on the way to or in hospital .

I thought they were spending something like six gajillion baht on radar guns to catch speeders. Did that money just disappear into brown envelopes?

This won't stop because mr Prayuth can't get the police to work, i never see a policecar on patrol and stopping trafficoffenders.

yeah, the thai police seem to have a very different idea of their jobs than what we expect

They talked about the count of dead people. Not the ones that run away. Dead people don´t run!

RIP all those who died ..

I'm sure there is a general in charge of public safety and also sure he has the time.
