Thailand’s roads over Songkran so Far

During this year’s Songkran period, 287 individuals lost their lives and 2,060 sustained injuries in 2,044 road incidents, as disclosed by Interior Minister Anutin Charnvirakul at a press briefing today. Among these, 28 fatalities and 287 injuries occurred yesterday alone.

Anutin highlighted speeding as the primary cause of these accidents, closely followed by drunk driving and reckless lane changes. Despite a decrease in casualties compared to last year, there was a slight uptick in the total number of accidents.

Motorcycles featured prominently in the accidents, with a significant portion of the victims failing to wear helmets.

Anutin announced that the road safety command center has been tasked with conducting a comprehensive analysis of accident data to formulate recommendations for presentation to the cabinet.
