Number of traffic accident declines

올해 교통사고 사망자 전년대비 13.8% 감소.. 광주는 보행자 사망 32.1% 감소

Number of traffic accident declines

 

The number of traffic deaths has decreased significantly this year thanks to tougher penalties on drunk drivers and speed limits in urban areas.

 

According to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, the number of deaths in traffic accidents stood at 2,402 during the January-September period, down 13.8 percent on-year.

 

The number of deaths involving drunk drivers declined drastically by 35.8 percent to 172. Some 93,000 drunk drivers were caught by police, down 25.3 percent over the same period.

 

The government tightened penalties for drunk driving last December and lowered the legal blood alcohol limit from 0.05 percent to 0.03 percent in June this year.

 

The number of pedestrian deaths dropped 15 percent from 1,057 to 898, most significantly in Ulsan at 45.3 percent, followed by Gwangju with 32.1 percent.
