Pattaya Deputy Mayor and police introduce anti-traffic accident campaign during approaching Songkran with goal of 100% helmet usage

Pattaya – 

The Pattaya Deputy Mayor and police joined hands in building an anti-traffic accident campaign with the main focus of “wearing a helmet for 100% of the time”.

Yesterday, April 7th, the Deputy Mayor Mr. Narit Niramaiwong presided over a campaign to prevent traffic and water accidents during the Songkran/Water festival (11th – 17th April). The event took place in front of Burapha University, Saensuk sub-district, Mueang district, Chonburi. The main point, according to the organizers, was to get 100% of the motorcyclists in Chonburi to wear a helmet. According to reports, the Chonburi Road Safety Administration Center has been trying to enforce this campaign since last January 2022 and will stop in October 2023.TPN noted that traffic accidents have continually been a controversial and infamous topic among Thais and foreign tourists who visited Thailand and Pattaya as evidenced by multiple accidents happening almost daily even in the Chonburi area alone.
