387 Motorway Accidents Took Over 500 Lives Last Year


The Motorway which was considered a safe way in long-distance travel is now losing its reputation. And the reason behind this marred position is the increasing frequency of accidents and tragic incidents every year.

According to official records, the past year witnessed a total of 387 motorway accidents, resulting in the loss of 503 lives and injuring 270 individuals. Among these accidents, 259 proved fatal, while 128 fortunately had no fatalities.

In July 2022, motorway accidents numbered 23, with this figure surging to 39 accidents in August 2022, marking a substantial 69% month-over-month (MoM) increase.

In November 2022, the motorway documented 39 accidents, indicating a 22% month-over-month (MoM) increase. December 2022 experienced a decline with 34 accidents, down by 13% MoM. The trend continued in January 2023, recording 27 motorway accidents, marking a 20% MoM decrease. However, in February 2023, the numbers rebounded with 34 accidents, representing a significant 26% increase from the previous month.

In May 2023, there were 26 accidents on the motorway, which was a 19% decrease compared to the previous month. This decline in accidents is a positive development and suggests that efforts to improve safety may be having an impact.

However, in June 2023, there was a significant increase in accidents, with 35 reported. This marked a 35% increase from the month prior, indicating a concerning trend of rising accidents.
