In Thailand this year, road accidents have injured 792,716 people and caused 14,417 deaths, according to Thailand’s Road Accident Victims Protection Company Limited. More than 15,000 familites have lost loved ones, and the injured have lost income opportunities during their period of treatment and recovery.
