They caution that these are just those that die at the scene – in reality when hospital deaths and all regions report their stats the figures are much higher. 

It is thought that between 24,000 and 26,000 die annually on the Thai roads, notes Thaivisa.

So far in October 554 have died at the scene of accidents. 

The total for the year nationwide is 11,462. 

Figures are reported every day by Daily News who highlighted the need to be vigilant at U-turns in their story about an air-conditioned bus on Route 29 that collided with the back of a container truck.

Seven passengers on the bus were injured in the accident on Pahonyothin Road near the Kesri 5 housing estate in Klong 1, Klong Luang district north of Bangkok. 

The truck driver was trying to execute a U-turn at the time.
