Govt urges New Year road safety

THE National Road Safety Committee has urged drivers to exercise care during the Khmer New Year holiday, which runs from April 14-16.

“Traffic accidents always happen because drivers are not cautious and violate the Traffic Law,” said Tram Iv Toek, minister of public works and transport, and chairman of the committee, in a statement dated Thursday. “Some drivers are speedy and have been driving under the influence of alcohol.”

The statement added that in 2009 Khmer New Year saw the deaths of 52 people out of a total of 509 road casualties.

“Do not overload people. Be moral and exercise mutual understandable when driving,” the committee said.
