Risker to drive in Nepal (Traffic accident data analysis)

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.

Traffic accidents in Nepal in rising trend

Analysis of 18 years of data starting from FY 049/050 to FY 066/067, shows that traffic accidents in Nepal is in rising trend. This demands something concrete to be done to improve traffic safety in Nepal


The data shows an alarming reality of commuters in Nepal that not much is done in improving traffic safety over these years. Concerned authorities should do something to reduce these accidents.

It’s not only the total number of accidents, serious accidents and fatality resulting from such accidents is also in increasing trend.


There was a little bit of decrease in accidents during 2061-063. But, that too might be attributed to the banda and strikes done almost every now and then. (Data by SI-Dipendra Pradad Sah, Metropolitan Traffic Police, Nepal)
