I am sure there will be a lot of mutual back-slapping and self-appreciation but what has this PR Stunt achieved- the sum total of bugger all. The roads are just as dangerous today.

I am sorry to say, but I not believe the official figures.
I heard many days around the clock the ambulance sirens on Phuket, and I am sure many others with me. 
Not a single hour without sirens!

How many were not killed on the road, but died in ambulance or in hospital?
