NGO warns against New Year’s drunk driving

A PRESS release from Handicap International urged motorists not to drink and drive during this year’s Chinese New Year celebration. The statement, issued last week, included recent statistics from the Road Crash Victim Information System, showing that 505 people were victims of road accidents during New Year celebrations in 2010, including 48 fatalities and 198 severe injuries. Thirteen percent of the victims were injured or killed due to drunken driving. “The majority of victims were between 15 and 29 years old,” the statement said, adding that Kampong Cham and Kandal provinces reported the highest rates of accidents.
