However, we know that there is also an unregistered traffic accident mortality rate. These are deaths in the treatment process. It is extremely important to save a person's life. There are about 25 thousand traffic police in Turkey, all of them tried to fails to create a human for nearly 365 years of professional life 30 days a year to come together. However, if each traffic officer acts responsibly throughout his / her career, it can prevent a person's death.
Penalties also increased in fines
The annual cost of traffic accidents, which emphasized that Turkey's economy $ 15 billion Uzunkaya, the investment budget of over 20 percent of this figure that drew attention.
Stating that they attach importance to traffic in Izmir and make an effort, Uzunkaya said:
"For example, we've written 14 thousand motorcyclists penalty that Turkey is not in general. But in 2014, motorcycle accidents increased by 9 percent compared to the previous year. We inspected nearly 2014 million vehicles in İzmir in 1.5, and 780 thousand of them were fined approximately 140 million TL. More than 91 thousand vehicles were fined as a result of civilian inspections, 79 thousand 941 of which are minibuses. Everything is very good, above the targets, but accident rates in our city increased by 2014 percent in 2013 compared to 10. Now, if someone is inspected in traffic, it is thought that the problem will be solved, no such thing. People also need to be sensitive. In addition, inspections in traffic should be made by evaluating the time of occurrence of the accidents and the factors preparing the accidents and changing them accordingly. "
