iciHaiti - Traffic : Deadly end of year, 229% increase in accidents
Garnel Michel Coordinator of the Haitian organization Technical and Operational Services to Stop Accidents (STOP-Accidents), informs us in its weekly report that from December 23 to 29, 2019, 39 accidents (+ 229% compared to the previous week) of the road on the national territory made at least 72 victims (+ 64%): 13 dead (+ 63%) and 59 wounded (+ 64%) including several seriously.

Delmas 75, Les Cayes, Léogâne, Miragoàne, Pèlerin 5, on the road to Frères, in Ouanaminthe, on the road to the airport, in Christ-Roi, Arcahaie, Fonds-Parisien, Saint-Marc and Bourdon are among others, are the main communes and areas where these accidents have been recorded. Among the injured were several schoolchildren and 4 police officers.

Remember that this weekly assessment was carried out in partnership with the National Ambulance Center (CAN) and the Haitian Red Cross. However, due to a lack of STOP-Accident means, it is unable to monitor the state of health of the injured, some of whom die from their injuries and are not counted.

STOP-Accidents, draws attention to the Pèlerin area (commune of Pétion-ville) where several accidents have been recorded in recent weeks and reiterates its call for caution on our roads while continuing to ask the authorities concerned to take measures to reduce the risk of accidents on public roads.
