About 160 killed in road accidents in Yangon in first four months of 2021

A total of 333 car accidents happened in the Yangon region in the first four months of 2021, killing about 160 people, according to the Yangon Region Traffic Police Force.
Although motorbikes have been banned and prohibited in the 33 townships administered by Yangon City Development Committee, people do not comply with the traffic rules. Therefore, the No.2 traffic police force (Yangon) has taken legal action against disobedient motorcyclists under Vehicle Safety and Motor Vehicle Management Law 2020 to follow the traffic rules and regulations and to reduce road accidents.
Deaths and injuries related to traffic accidents remain a significant concern in Myanmar. They were mainly caused by human error – over speeding, negligent driving and drowsy driving, and others, including defective vehicles and severe weather.
According to the Yangon Region Traffic Police Force, from January to April 2021, a total of 6,366 vehicles and 3,048 motorbikes were seized. — Aye Maung/GNLM
