Thai police and agencies give money to people who capture traffic violators on camera

Thailand intends to reduce this ratio to 12 per 100,000 by 2027. According to the World Health Organization, Thailand has the tenth highest road death rate in the world, with 32.7 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants. The goal of “Vision Zero” is to eradicate all road deaths and serious injuries by 2050. Sweden came up with the Vision Zero concept, which has now become a policy aim for other nations with high traffic fatality rates. Cars filmed dashboard films of other vehicles exceeding traffic limits during Thailand’s Songkran holiday’s “7 Dangerous Days,” when the number of road deaths typically soars.

PM Prayut accepts that meeting the 2050 objective will be difficult, but believes it can be accomplished if everyone works together. Last week, Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha stated that his goal is to reduce Thailand’s road deaths by half by 2027. The Royal Thai Police cooperated with a number of organizations and businesses as part of a road safety program to reward citizens with cash for video evidence of traffic offences. The prize money ranged from 2,000 to 20,000 baht for the winners. For more than 20 video clips, the Royal Thai Police, Viriyah Insurance, Don’t Drive Drunk Foundation, JS100 Radio, and FM91 Radio each earned 120,000 baht. The winners were also given certificates by RTP.
