This is the chart for day 3, compare the figures for these 3 charts. The difference is those that died in hospital

According to,  Thailand only includes victims who died at the scene, while WHO statistics include persons that died within 30 days of the accident.Read more at
The statement by is incorrect.
Read your news reports from Bangkok Post, The Nation and Pbs Thai and you will see that the reports on day 1 for day 1 lists 39 deaths and then on day 3 it updates the figures for day 1 and now the deaths are 41, that is 2 more deaths that did not occur at the scene of the accident but did occur in the hospital and then on day 7 it updates to the final figures as 48 deaths on day 1. So from day 1 to day 7 the deaths for day 1 has increased by 9, those 9 died in hospital not at the scene of the accident.

Sorry Stevve but your statement that the ones that die on the way to or in hospital are not counted is incorrect.
Day 1 first report was that there was 39 deaths that is what was a direct figure from deaths at the scene but that number was updated to finish at 48 deaths for day 1 because the other deaths were from hospitals when the person died from injuries from an accident from day 1 for the whole 7 days the deaths have been updated on a daily basis as people died in hospital but now that day 7 has passed anyone who dies in hospital from any accident between day 1 and day 7 does not go onto the count for the 7 days.
Here is the totals at the finish of the 7 days there were updates of the deaths for the first 5 days but there has been no updates since.
 2018          Day 1     Day 2     Day 3     Day 4     Day 5     Day 6     Day 7     Total     Difference with 2017
Accidents      447         578         819         599         549        425         307        3724               +34
Injuries         452         610         847         617         571        464         336        3897               +89
Deaths           48           72           90           61           72           49           26         418                +28

If it is the lady that I am thinking of that is at desk 3 she is a very helpful lady and she has always been pleasant with everyone that I have seen her dealing with and those beautifully painted finger nails. Kajornsak it must be something that you have done because there is no way that she is what you claim she is.

Where to find . . . / Re: Dry Ice

What a hassle it has been trying to get Dry Ice, mypunch listed a website complete with a phone number but the address on the website did not show the correct location on Google Maps. We tried to ring the phone number for about 3 hours but no answer, I sent an email to the listed email address but again no answer, so the wife spent another 4 hours and three phone calls to Bangkok before we eventually got a location and it is nowhere near Lao Nardi Rd it is in a soi near Bangkok Hospital. In the search for the dry ice I found a much better system, it is an electronic system similar to the one on the ice cream bikes and it is quite cheap. There are 3 different sizes ranging from 66litre for 5500baht to a 120litre for 9500baht, all you do is plug it into the power overnight and it is good for 10-12 hours. Better than dry ice.
Thank you to everyone for you input into this, it is much appreciated.

There is a lot of debate in regards to the new medical certificate as to whether it is required for renewal of license or if it is only for new applications. There does not seem to be anywhere that gives all the information. There was also talk that the new medical certificate could only be obtained from a hospital and not at a clinic like it used to be.

Hi Jimmy, I have 2 printer/scanners. one is a HP which works very well but I would recommend a Cannon because the Cannon that I have I can scan any size document not only A4 or smaller like the HP and also for the printing the Cannon gives me a larger selection of paper sizes plus a custom sizing which the HP does not. I am currently printing labels that are smaller than A4 but the HP will not accept the size that I need but the Cannon is no problem
The Cannon that I have is the Pixma 497, but I am unsure of the price

Thanks mrpunch it has given me a big start and I think I have traced them down. Unfortunately your link showed an incomplete phone number but by using that link I have been able to aquire an email address. The actual location shown on Google Maps is incorrect, 555/18 Lao Nadi Road is the shown as the group of shops the block before where Google Maps show but the address that I have also found is 555/18 The Victoria Village which is located on the opposite of the road about 1 kilometre further down the road towards the Ring Rd.
Yours has been the best lead that I have had and I thank you very much for that.

All I use is a couple of old tee shirts and that way when one gets too much dust in it I throw it in the wash and use the other one.
I find the old cotton tee shirts handy for covering anything to keep the dust out

I have strolled through all the sections here just in case it had been asked before.
I have been told that there is a place that sells blocks of dry ice and that they are located around the Lao Nadi Rd area but no one has been able to give me the location or the name of the company.
Now I have been told by someone that someone told him it was near Makro, and another has now said it is near the old bus station.
Does anybody know where this place is.
All help much appreciated.
