Nearly 43 000 road accidents in 2013, a multisectoral meeting in preparation

Algerian roads recorded a total of 42864 accidents in 2013, an increase of 0.9% compared to 2012.

The number of deaths identified reached 4 540 (+2.1% compared to 2012).

In such an alarming situation, the Minister of transport plans to hold a multisectoral meeting "to look deep into the causes of the hike of road accidents". The ministries of Transport, of the Interior, of Defence, of Public Works, as well as the gendarmerie and the National Security will be asked to take part in the meeting.
