Festive season road death expected to reach 1 000
29 December 2010
An indication by the Road Traffic Management Corporation suggests that there has been an increase in 2010's festive season death toll.
The initial figures show that more than 900 people have died on the roads already; the number is expected to reach 1000 soon.
Road Traffic Management Corporation spokesperson Ashref Ismail said “we expected a 50-percent reduction in road deaths, because of the good track record during the World Cup, but it seems that this is not the case”.
