A total of 11 people lost their lives in road accidents in Cyprus last month alone and this bleak statistic is recorded even after traffic lights have come into operation.
In other words, June was the month during which one fatal road accident took place every three days and this is shocking with authorities admitting they are in despair, Philenews reports.
In the first half of 2022, 24 deaths were recoded compared to 16 the same period last year. And if two road fatalities with British Bases’ territory are added, then the death toll reaches 26.
That is, an increase in fatal road accidents by 33% is marked.
Authorities admit the situation has gotten out of hand and that they have run out of solutions. The recent meeting held after the back-to-back fatalities in June merely identified the problem and x-rayed the fatalities.
However, no new measures were announced aiming to turn around the bleak situation.
