Fadi Gebran, head of “KunHadi” association held a press conference today on car accidents in lebanon, their causes and how to prevent them.
According to Gebran, and based on numbers provided by the Red Cross and ISF, accidents in Lebanon increase between 12 and 17% yearly.
With the degrading status of our roads, and the lack of any structured plan to stop reckless drivers, among whom are some ISF officers, i don’t see accidents decreasing at all.
PS: Note that the numbers in the table above are as of March 2010.
Any idea on the growth rate of cars available on the roads? There could be a correlation.
I don’t think we should look at this correlation, but rather at the “damaged” cars we are getting from the states and more specifically the sports cars.
I don’t see how buying “repaired” cars alone would be the cause of an increase in accidents.
I didn’t say alone Jad, but a very big number of cars being imported lately is damaged (without those buying it knowing) and such cars endanger the driver and other drivers.
Did anyone think of the unexperienced unqualified drivers who buy their drivers license?
But this was the same before and is still unchanged.
