Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan has highlighted the government’s policy of improving road safety and reducing traffic congestion.

Gen Prawit chaired the committee meeting on road safety, revealing afterwards that improvements will be made through amendments to laws pertaining to drunk driving, speeding, the issuance of driver’s licenses, bus safety, and the use of seat belts. The amendments aim to ensure that the country’s road safety laws adhere to international standards and prevent accidents as best as possible.

To address traffic congestion, Gen Prawit revealed that the government’s long-term policies include increasing public transportation and air traffic routes, building more bypass roads, and increasing electric trains. For an immediate solution, the government has instructed Bangkok’s Metropolitan Police Bureau to deploy more police officers to facilitate traffic.

Gen Prawit also invited the public to utilize public transportation more frequently.
