Did you know that the Legal Development Program (LDP) was established in 2015 with the aim of reducing road injuries and fatalities through legislative improvement? We’re turning three this year and what better way to celebrate this special occasion than spotlighting our hard-working team of road safety experts?
In the coming months, tune in every week to hear LDP members discuss their experiences working in road safety in a new series, “Up close with LDP”. You can watch the entire series here.
In today’s instalment, second-generation LDP member Pisith Wongthiathana, the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation’s Director of Legal Development and Consulting 2 Legal Affairs Division, is here to tell us all about the process of improving all five key road safety legislation through the Working Group to Review Road Safety Legislation under the National Road Safety Directing Centre (RSDC) – which resulted in the Cabinet’s approval of 15 legislative and regulatory improvements in five key areas including drink-driving, speed, driver’s licence, public transport, and seat belts on 4 October 2016.
