Jeju, two-wheeler traffic accident accidents surge…
As the traffic accidents of motorcycles, increased in Jeju, it has become more urgent to prepare prevention measures.
According to the National Police Agency and the Korea Transportation Safety Authority, the number of two-wheeled vehicle accidents in Jeju in the past three years has increased to 310 in 2017, 311 in 2018, and 366 last year. Last year was 18.1% increase in two years compared to 2017.
Until the first half of this year, there were 11 deaths in two-wheeled car accidents in Jeju Island, up 37.5% from eight in the same period last year.
Traffic accidents in two-wheeled vehicles in Jeju mostly occurred in downtown with heavy traffic, but deaths occurred mainly on secluded roads such as coastal roads, mountain roads, and rural areas.
Actually, at 11:56 pm on the 16th of last month, A (20. Gyeonggi), who visited Jeju to get a college field class on a road near a pension in Gangjeong-dong, Seogwipo-si, crashed into a roadside while driving a motorcycle.
Traffic law violations accounted for about half of ‘non-compliance with safe driving’ at 48%. Followed by ‘Directional Right Turn Progress Interference’,’Signal Violation’, and ‘Unsecured Safety Distance’ were followed.
An official at the Jeju Headquarters of the Korea Transport Safety Authority emphasized that “currently, two-wheeled vehicles are very vulnerable to traffic accidents, so we must strengthen our cooperation system between related organizations to concentrate on securing traffic safety.”
In addition, “two-wheeled vehicles, such as the spread of delivery culture due to corona19, the aging of the population, and the status of two-wheeled vehicles as a means of transportation in rural areas, are emerging as vulnerable factors for traffic safety.” And “You must wear a hard hat.”
