BANGKOK, April 11 (Xinhua) -- Thailand has opened a Road Safety Directing Center in a bid to reduce road accidents during the Songkran festival nationwide.

Interior Minister Anupong Paochinda opened on Wednesday the Road Safety Directing Center at the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation headquarters to reduce road accidents which had caused deaths and injuries in previous years.

In coordination with the Bangkok-based center, the authorities in the provinces nationwide are strictly taking road safety measures during the period from April 11 to April 17, which marks the annual festive season.

Motorists may be arrested for speeding or driving drunk during the Songkran festival and be considered by police as suspects of special cases which call for maximum penalties by law.
