Daily News continued their campaign to raise awareness about the appalling fatalities on the Thai roads. 

Thailand road carnage:

They said that 26 died on Tuesday but cautioned that this figure was not official. It refers just to those that die at the scene of accidents not those that succumb later in hospital. Also some districts are late in reporting their figures.  

Thaivisa notes that Thai officialdom have accepted that well in excess of 20,000 people die on the roads in the kingdom each year. Some put the figure at around 24,000 – 26,000 per annum.

This ranks Thailand as one of the most dangerous places in the world to drive.

At the scene deaths for this month already total 422.

The year figure is 13,885. 

Daily News highlighted the need for those riding “big bikes” (powerful motorcycles) to take care on the roads. 

They showed a picture after a motorcyclist on a Honda CBR 650 was killed after going into the side of an Isuzu pick-up then into a wall.
