The Department of Highways holds road safety campaign


BANGKOK, 24 December 2013 — The Department of Highways will be holding a road safety campaign in order to provide safety measures and convenience to travelers during the New Year holiday. 

Deputy Transport Minister Gen. Prin Suwannathat presided over the opening ceremony of the campaign and provided the department with the appropriate policies that would ensure motorists’ safety during their New Year travels.

Department of Highways director-general Chatchawan Booncharoen-kit expects numerous people to travel back to their hometowns during the holidays – especially up north to enjoy the unusually cold weather and frost.

To ensure travelers’ safety and prevent fatalities on the highways, the Department of Highways has therefore launched a caravan of patrol police that will keep an extra close watch on the safety of motorists during December 27 – January 2 of next year.
