[Youtube] Drive Responsibly

Via Tracy’s blogpost (yes, I do read your blog. Via RSS):

Traffic police should do something similar to this. (SPF has a Youtube channel!) However, given the nature of this 5-minute clip, I guess it is not possible to be screen on primetime slots on TV. Anyway, this video should be a reminder to those who thinks that driving on the road is the same as driving in an arcade game.

I accessed the 2008 statistics of traffic accidents provided by SPF. Overall, it painted a healthy picture with rates:

2008 Annex A Chart A1
Traffic Report: 2008 Annex A Chart A1
Traffic 2008 Annex A Chart A2
Traffic Report: 2008 Annex A Chart A2

But the year on year information defers:

TABLE A2: NUMBER OF FATAL AND INJURY ACCIDENTS

2008
Fatal
209
213
Injury
8,116
8,238

8,451

TABLE A3: NUMBER OF PERSONS KILLED AND INJURED IN ACCIDENTS

2008
Killed
214
222
Injured
10,352
10,742
TOTAL

Wakey, wakey. Accidents are on the raise.
