Many people travel during long holiday breaks, such as New Year and Songkran, resulting in an increase in road accidents. This is why the New Year and Songkran holidays are dubbed the "seven dangerous days". 

Songkran this year resulted in a staggering number of road-related accidents, 366 deaths and 3,345 injuries.

Another alarming road accident statistic involves public buses. In the six months from October last year to April this year, there were 97 deaths from four major accidents involving double-decker buses.
