Reckless Drivers Rise Number of Accidents
The main cause of these accidents was the driver’s loss of concentration.
VIVAnews – The Jakarta Directorate of Traffic announced that most accidents that claimed the lives of people in early 2012 were caused by driver’s negligence.
Head of Jakarta Traffic Security & Safety Sub Directorate, Adj. Chief Comm. Yakub Dedi Karyawan, said the main cause of these accidents was the driver’s loss of concentration.
“Other conditions on drivers that often caused accidents are sleepiness, drunkenness, tiredness, lack of skill, lack of discipline and use of cell phones while driving,” said Yakub in Jakarta on Monday.
To date, Tugu Tani accident in Central Jakarta killed nine pedestrians because the driver lost her concentration. The car was driven at high speed and became difficult to control.
“The condition of the environment may also influence the driver’s attitude. The more ordered the traffic is, the calmer the drivers will be in controlling their vehicles,” he said.
