Thailand’s Minister of Transport, Arkhom Termpittayapaisith , has launched a New Year road safety campaign, taking place from December 24th to January 2nd during which time over 15 million people are expected to travel throughout the country.
The campaign consists of 2,300 free vehicle inspection stations across and 372 rest stops. The ministry has also established a traffic safety and facilitation center with the 24-hour hotline 1356 and has ensured that additional bus, train and airplane personnel are ready to accommodate all.
At the same time, the ministry will be monitoring compliance with traffic laws, such as the wearing of helmets, fastening of seatbelts and switching on of vehicle lights, with special surveillance on roads with historically high accident rates.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Public Health has launched its own emergency hotline, 1669, and has prepared emergency rooms and ambulances to support the road safety campaign.
Permanent Secretary of Public Health Sukhum Karnchanapimai said he has instructed medical personnel across the country to stand ready around the clock to assist those in need.Facebook.
