QCOSTARICA – So far this year (to December 21), there have been 354 traffic deaths – that is one a day on average,  according to the figures by the Cruz Roja Costarricense (Red Cross).

Important to note the Cruz Roja only takes into account fatalities on the scene, it does not include deaths of the injured in hospital.

The Cruz Roja says the major cause of fatal accidents is drunk driving, followed by speeding and careless driving.

The Cruz Roja noted that 14 of the deaths were minors, urging the public to use safety devices at all times.

The numbers are up, 2014 figure is 28 more than the 326 recorded for the same period last year.

And the worst of the year is yet to come, as many put aside caution to be on time for Christmas and New Year’s activities.
