Nong Khai opens road safety center for Songkran holiday period


NONG KHAI, 11 April 2014  — Nong Khai province has opened a road safety center to handle accident reports and any vehicle problems that arise during the Songkran Festival. 

The safety center was opened near the Nong Khai – Vientiane Bypass intersection, and was presided over by the Governor of Nong Khai, Mr. Virat Limsuwat.

The road safety center’s objective is to lessen traffic accidents by at least 5% compared to the previous year. The center will focus its operations on five aspects: management, law enforcement, traffic engineering, public relations, and emergency medical services.

The Nong Khai road safety center will also act as an information kiosk for travelers on unfamiliar roads, as well as having a team of mechanics to handle car problems 24 hours a day.
