Common causes of accidents

I would like to respond to the frontpage news article, ‘Not wearing seat belt costs senior citizen his life’, published on July 13.

While I think it’s important to wear seat belt at all times, I believe the real reason behind a car accident can often be attributed to the driver’s reckless behaviour or road or weather conditions.

I would like to appeal to the authorities to consider releasing facts and figures to help the public better understand the common causes of traffic accidents in the country, to ward us off dangerous driving habits that can cost lives.
