The Cruz Roja (Red Cross) released on Monday that 16 people died violently this past weekend, with traffic accidents the leading cause.

In the 48 hours between Saturday and Sunday, four people became victims of being hit by a vehicle, while six others involved in a collision between vehicles.

According to Jim Batres, assistant director of operations at the Cruz Roja, it had been a quiet month until this weekend. Batres points to this weekend being a pay weekend and many were out taking in the summer conditions as a major factor in the number of deaths.

The recommendations to not become a statistic are to respect the rules of traffic, don’t drink and driver, keep your vehicle in a good state of repair and avoid driving for long periods, especially at night. These recommendations are basic but they could be the difference between getting home safely or not.

So far this month (to Sunday) there have been 58 violent deaths. Last February the month closed with 95.
