Of road safety According to the analysis of the injury situation, the trend has decreased continuously from 2556 to 2559, decreasing by 28.90 percent, decreasing by 7.2 percent per year. Death statistics are not likely to decline. At the rate of death, the number of deaths from road accidents was the second leading cause of death in the outpatient years. The motorcycle accident was the highest in the past three years. Most of the causes are from driving fast with drunk driving. As a result, the road safety center of Sri Satchanalai district has led the driving prevention and reduction of road deaths process by using the District Health System (DHS). DHS is an integrated health system of promoting, prevention, treatment and maintaining. It focuses on the co-operation of district-level networks with the goal of providing healthy district. It means that people have better health. People care of their health and health team work together with strong efforts and are ready to encounter changes in health problem. The key principle of the DHS system is that it will be responsible for its own actions. As road accidents solution, it is found that prior action served in modular operation. Therefore, we introduced the DHS RTI system into the workplace. Through the UCCARE process, U-Unity creates a collaborative network to reduce road accidents from all sectors. C-Customer focus analyzes, arrange sub-district plan, recognize the needs of the community and return health information including major health issues such as number of accidents, casualties and deaths. C-Community Participation creates participation of the multidisciplinary team such as public health officers, teachers, police, provincial administration organization, rescue team, Civil Protection Volunteers, and Village Health Volunteers (VHV). A-Appreciatation is a performance presentation. There is an appreciation and congratulation along with a site visit to encourage all officers. R-Resources Sharing and Human Development Together is an integrated operation with local government in the area. It shares all resources including personnel, budget and knowledge. E-Essential Care is a network service that provides public relation knowledge and develop rescue team network. Performance outcome from the operation between October 2016 and August 2017 indicated injuries of 889.3 per 1 00 000 population and deaths 17.11 per 1 00 000 population or a decrease of 30.69%. Factors that promote this success resulted from correcting risk points which caused repeated deaths and educating traffic discipline in institutions as well as transportation agents, police, public health and schools to the risk group aged 15–24. This project will continue to raise public awareness and reduce road accidents in the future.
