Lunar New Year traffic deaths down this year

Traffic accidents in the three days over Chinese New Year decreased compared with the same period last year, Ministry of Interior officials said yesterday. Him Yan, director of the Department of Public Order at the Ministry of Interior, said that traffic accidents killed 29 people nationwide between February 2 and February 5, compared with 31 deaths over Chinese New Year last year. “There were 103 road incidents across the country this year, 29 deaths and 210 injured.” Him Yan said that traffic accidents had decreased because the government and police officials had educated people about traffic laws.
