75% Road Mishaps in the City by Motorists
It seems that city roads are no longer safe due to the lack of discipline for safety rules by motorists. It is learnt that motorists were involved in more than 72% of all accidents in the last 4 years on the city roads.
According to Hyderabad traffic police statistics, since 2009, motorists are held responsible for 30% accidents in city and those involved have been victims in 42% of all accidents.
Up to April this year, 75% of accidents had motorists involved. Though there is rise in motorists’ accidents, we hardly see people protecting themselves from helmet. Last year, a survey was done by the World Health Organisation and they found that less than 20% of motorists wear helmets in city.
