Road accidents kill 15 a day in February

UNB

At least 15 people were killed and 36 injured in an average of 13 road crashes a day across the country in February this year. On the other hand, at least 413 people, including 53 women and 48 children, died and 995 others, including 46 women and 19 children, injured in 373 road crashes in last month between 1 February and 28 February, reports UNB. A regular monthly survey and observation report of National Committee to Protect Shipping, Roads and Railways (NCPSRR), a non-government organisation, revealed it yesterday.

The fatal accidents took place on the several roads, highways, national roads, inter-district and regional roads across the country in January.

The report was prepared on the basis of 22 English and Bangla national dailies, 10 regional newspapers and eight online news portals and news agencies, the report said.

According to the report, some 22 people, including five women, were killed and 80 others, including one woman, injured in 31 railway accidents, while seven people, including one woman and three children, were killed and seven others injured in six waterway accidents during the same period.

The observation said that maximum major road accidents happened due to whimsicality and shortage of carefulness of heavy vehicles' drivers. There are lack of proper monitoring and supervision of the authorities concerned in this regard, the NCPSRR said.
