In May, 2011 we posted about traffic accidents in Nepal up to FY 2066/067. Adding one more data to the chart shows an alarming increase in the number of accident in FY 2067/068. That was an increase of more than 500 accidents in a year.
When we see the number of death due to accidents, the number also increases from 146 to 171 death, an increase of 25 deaths.
The data shows that the government is not doing enough to reduce accidents or death caused by such accidents. So, the citizen themselves should be more careful while driving. They should be more proactive to increase awareness in people about traffic safety and rules of the road.
I hope the social media groups that have been doing laudable works in the past will also think in that direction.
