City road deaths

A survey of 100 road accidents in Phnom Penh in July showed eight people died and 156 were injured. Most of the victims were on motorbikes, and only 1 percent wore helmets. The report, produced by Handicap International Belgium, blamed poorly maintained roads and drink-driving. Ung Chun Hour, of the Ministry of Public Works and Transport, said the government was working to reduce the number of casualties, and the National Assembly will consider a new traffic law. "We also want to set up a road safety management committee, he said."
