STATEMENT ON THE 2016 THIRD QUARTER ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENT STATISTICS
A total number of 8,231 road traffic accidents were recorded during this years third quarter as compared to 8,839 recorded in 2015 during the same period, indicating a decrease by 608 cases.
Out of the 8,231 accidents, 519 were fatal in which 635 people lost their lives with Lusaka recording the highest with 153 deaths, followed by Central and Copperbelt Provinces which had 125 and 92 respectively. The remaining Provinces recorded the lowest ranging between 54 and 26.
When compared to the third quarter of 2015, the number of people who lost their lives in 2016 has reduced from 641 to 635. The number of people who sustained serious injuries also reduced from 1,943 in the third quarter of 2015 as compared to 1,841 in the third quarter of 2016 representing a decrease by 102 people.
2,144 people were slightly injured in the same period under review as compared to 2,110 in the third quarter of 2015 representing an increase by 34 people who were slightly injured.
Most of the accidents on our Zambian roads have been attributed to human error due to excessive speed, misjudging clearance distance, failing to keep to the near side and cutting in.
As Zambia Police, we wish to appeal to all road users to adhere to road traffic rules and regulations in order to reduce the number of traffic accidents on our roads.
