Until September of this year, the country’s roads registered 1,760 deaths, in more than seven thousand four hundred road accidents.
The data were released as part of the homage that the world paid this Sunday, 20th, in memory of the victims on the roads, with the aim of remembering the accidents that occurred on the roads, identified as the second cause of death in Angola.
It is increasingly dangerous to drive on country roads. You have to be very careful to reach your destination unharmed. When you least expect it, potholes appear where you used to circulate freely, without the competent authorities putting up adequate signage to avoid accidents.
The report made by Kianda’s mail found that from Luanda to Sumbe several potholes are appearing along the route. Although small, they tend to increase due to the large flow of light and heavy vehicles. With each passing day, the holes increase in size and traffic becomes more dangerous and complicated.
Driving can be an ordeal for some, but with good roads and compliance with traffic rules, long distance travel can be done with peace of mind.
Drivers need to be aware of the dangers they may face, especially on rural and remote roads. If they have to travel during the night, they must be careful not to bump into the animals that graze along the road.
