The violation of the rights on the road, distractions, excessive speed and other actions are major causes for the accidents.

The National Road Security Commission is currently implementing measures to counter the problems, including more rigorous technical inspection of vehicles.

A recent World Health Organization report says that half the mortal victims of traffic accidents are pedestrians, motorists and cyclists, and that this is the major cause of death in ages between 15 and 29.
