The deputy governor of Chiang Mai province said officials had done everything they could to limit the death toll on the roads at New Year. 

 

But despite their "100% efforts" Khomsan Suwanampha admitted that this year had been worse than last. 

 

Rather than blame the authorities he blamed tourists and the unseasonal rain that claimed the lives of twelve people on the roads in just the first four of the so called "deadly days". 

 

He promised increased measures to ensure the situation did not further deteriorate, reported INN.
