Officials at a high profile meeting on road safety said they hope that the deterrent of threatening probation, community service and the wearing of an EM (electronic monitoring) device would lower road accidents at Songkran. 

Department of Probation representative Phayon Sinthunawa was meeting with officials from the Road Safety Directing Center.

It was the first collaboration meeting of the year to discuss what to do on Thailand’s notoriously treacherous roads that have seen the kingdom named as one of the most dangerous places in the world to drive. 

Speaking in front of a large sign that said “Achieving the standard of safe journeys – together” Phayon claimed that the EM devices would help lower accidents. 

He promised plenty would be issued by the courts to those breaking the traffic rules at Songkran.
