A total of 33 people were killed and 322 injured in road accidents across Thailand on Dec 27, the first day of the so-called "Seven Dangerous Days", Transport Minister Chatchart Suthipan said on Friday. 

The "Seven Dangerous Days" road safety campaign during the New Year holiday runs from Dec 27 to Jan 2, 2013.

The province with the most fatalities on day one was Chiang Mai, with four deaths, followed by Bangkok, with three. Drunk driving was the main cause of accidents, Mr Chatchart said.
