K.Kassymov: Kazakhstan steadily reduces rate of traffic accidents
Despite the growth of the country’s car fleet, a rate of road accidents is steadily declining due to video fixation systems, the Minister of Internal Affairs of Kazakhstan Kalmukhanbet Kassymov said during the Government meeting.
The Minister noted that over the past three years, despite the growth of the country’s car fleet, the rate of road accidents is steadily declining. The same trend is observed in the current year. The number of road accidents was reduced by almost 2.5%, fatalities – by 4% and injured people – by 2%.
“In order to enhance discipline in the regions it is necessary to widespread use of automatic photo and video fixation systems for traffic violations, as well as to provide employees of the road patrol police with driver recorders. Today, about 900 road sections are equipped with photo and video fixation systems. The largest number of automated systems is available in Astana and Almaty, from 10 to 40 systems are in other regions,” K. Kassymov informed.
