It’s almost impossible these days that one single day passes without seeing at least one or two traffic accidents, actually seeing a horrific car accident everyday on my way to work/back home on King Fahad motorway has become very usual scene, sadly. Although I’m observing that regardless of the awareness campaigns the road accidents and violations are infact climbing up.
I saw this newly published traffic statistics for the duration January-June 2012 (that’s six months) and the figures are horrendous! Among the figures 44.6 thousand traffic accidents (that’s like 241 accidents per day), 227 got killed, 146 thousand broke red lights, 4.9 thousand got injured, 1.7 Million traffic tickets and the numbers keep flowing, I suspect the real numbers are much scarier.
