The National Police Office are set to launch a centre of the prevention of road accidents around the New Year’s festive season. Assistant Commissioner of the Royal Thai Police, Pol. Lt. Gen. Ruengsak Charit-ek, is in charge of the operation and will coordinate the dispatch of the police men who will work at the centers for accident prevention.
The main objective of the centre is to reduce road accidents during December 27 and January 2 – the period dubbed the ‘7 Dangerous Days’ – during which a large number of people will be traveling throughout the country.
Over 80,000 policemen nationwide and a large number of volunteers will man alcohol checkpoints on all main roads and bus terminals. Emphasis will be placed on drunk drivers, those not wearing seat belts or helmets, and traffic law offenders. Rapid response teams equipped with tow trucks will be on standby at every police station to provide service to the public. Rest areas for drivers to park their cars will also be arranged on main roads.
