And, You Know, That Too

Road accidents went down by 1.06% in the first quarter of 2009, according to a report from the Moroccan Minister of Transport.

This drop is due to a good "coordination between the different players at the level of implementation and the follow-up of monitoring, communication and education projects," said Ghellab, who was chairing the 51st general assembly of the national commission for the prevention of road accidents (CNPAC).

He went on to cite the modernization of commercial trucks and delivery vehicles, improved road maintenance, and education campaigns as contributing factors.

I might also point out that there was a transit strike, but you know, details.

What's the latest survey? A steadying decline would be welcome news. Road mishaps are very intricate matters, and sometimes it's easy to blame suspects because of the gravity of the accidents. Less accidents translate to safer and more reliable roads.
