Checkpoints on major roads will be set up to ensure public safety.
“The seven days safety campaign targets a reduction in accidents and loss of life.”
A similar campaign runs over the Songkran holiday, during another a peak in road incidents. Christmas sees more accidents involving foreigners and Songkran largely affects the Thai population.
