Thailand targets 50% reduction in Road Fatalities by 2020

A good idea, if there were any specific plans.  Maybe enforcing current laws on seat belts and wearing motorbike helmets would start.

First on the list of ideas is to get all agencies to work together to get a better estimate on the number of fatalities...

According to TTR

Thailand will introduce measures to cut road fatalities by 50% by the year 2020, as part of a road safety campaign that has been placed on the national agenda.
In theory, national agenda status means all ministries must co-operate and coordinate efforts to reach the objectives of road safety projects or campaigns.

Ministry of Interior deputy permanent secretary, Panadda Diskul, said Thailand, as a member of the United Nations, needed to push harder to promote road safety to lower road accidents.
