It seems that the Thai government is seeking the aid of Japan to make roads around the kingdom safer.
Thailand’s Ministry of Transport has gone to Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MLIT) for advice on reducing the number of accidents on Thai roads over this year’s festive period.
Thailand’s Transport Minister, Arkhom Termpittayapaisith met with representatives from MLIT to talk about various safety measures under a memorandum of understanding regarding road safety.
Roads across the kingdom are expected to be especially busy over the holiday season and as a result officials will be implementing additional safety measures including erecting additional speed limit signs, painting parts of roads red to remind drivers to reduce their speed.
The new measures will initially be put in place across four provinces as a trial, these being Suphanburi, Uttaradit, Phetchabun and Khon Kaen.
Also in an effort to improve road safety the Ministry of Transport will conduct a joint study with members of MLIT into using existing technology to reduce the number of fatal road accidents on Thai Roads.
