The chief of the communications ministry has said that the Thai authorities are targeting a 10% reduction in accidents on a selected batch of particularly dangerous Thai roads – 111 in all.
They want to see a 5% reduction overall in the number of accidents.
If this is achieved in terms of the expected death toll it would mean somewhere around 25 – 30 less corpses this year, Thaivisa notes.
Minister Arkhom Termphaisit was all smiles yesterday at the prospect. He appeared with several beautiful Thai promotional ladies in a press event at the Department of Rural Roads.
