Government to install Chinese road signs to reduce accidents in Northern Thailand

With the recent boom numbers of Chinese visiting Thailand a boom in Chinese involvement in road accidents has closely followed. In order to counteract this, the government is set to install Chinese road signs.

The Tourism Department and the Transport Ministry will install direction signs in Chinese next year in a bid to reduce the number of accidents caused by tourists travelling from China to Thailand especially around Chiang Mai.

Chiang Mai is becoming one of the most popular destinations for Chinese tourists with many arriving by car via route R3A through the Chiang Khong checkpoint in Chiang Rai. However with a lack of understanding of local traffic laws and directions the boom in tourism caused a boom in traffic accidents.

In March 2015 a speeding Chinese tourist killed a motorcyclist in Chiang Rai, the car he was driving had been driven from China.
