Delhi: Speeding BMW Rams into Parked Vehicle
Analyzing data collected from 2019 to the present year, the traffic police have taken steps to enhance preventive measures. This includes identifying areas prone to accidents, augmenting the deployment of traffic personnel, and taking legal action against motorists. Special Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Surender Singh Yadav stated, “Upon examining the fatal road accident data from 2019 to 2023, it indicates that the contribution of such accidents during nighttime has increased by at least 4% over the past five years, while similar incidents during the day have decreased by nearly the same margin.” Traffic experts attribute the rise in fatal road accidents during the night to factors such as drink driving, the high speed of commercial vehicles, and a decreased presence of traffic personnel during nighttime.
Regarding simple accidents, which involve injuries or no injuries, there were 2,842 such incidents until July 15 this year. Out of these, 1,182, accounting for 42%, occurred at night. In 2019, out of 4,177 simple accidents, 2,497 took place during the daytime, constituting nearly 60% of all simple accidents, as indicated by the data. Comparing figures of fatal accidents between 2019 and 2022 (excluding pandemic years 2020 and 2021 with widespread shutdowns), a subtle shift in the trend was observed. In 2019, there were 656 fatalities during the day and 777 at night. In 2022, the numbers changed to 622 during the day and 806 at night. This indicates a decrease in deaths from road accidents during the day in 2022, while the numbers increased during the night.
