Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu, "We have introduced the concept of Turkey average speed corridor. The Ministry of Transport objected us most. "We make money from these highways, if we set a speed limit, we will lose," he said. Along with the speed corridor, the accident rate on those highways decreased by 23 percent. “We declare strict management on buses. We either follow the right rule or explain the most insecure bus companies every 3 months. ”
Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu attended the conference held at Istanbul Commerce University within the scope of the 'No Small Errors in Traffic' social responsibility project. Speaking here, Soylu said, “We had a 2018 percent decrease in the number of casualties at the scene of traffic accidents in 2019-25. This means that 250 thousand less lives were lost in a year, including hospital deaths. We aim to close the year 2020 with a level of 5 thousand ”.
“THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT DECREASE IN PEDESTIC DEATH”
Soylu, who gave some figures for traffic accidents in his speech, said:
“In 2018-2019, we achieved a 25 percent decrease in the number of casualties at the scene of traffic accidents. This means that 250 thousand less lives were lost in a year, including hospital deaths. 7 thousand 427 is our loss of life in 2017.
6 thousand 675 is our loss of life in 2018. Hopefully we will close with 5 this year. We aim to close 500 with a level of 2020 thousand. If less, we will be happy. Regarding the model traffic vehicles, which are the subject of controversy, they were placed in the regions with the most accidents and reduced the accidents in that region by over 5 percent. We have introduced the concept of average speed corridor to Turkey.
The Ministry of Transport objected us most. "We make money from these highways, if we set a speed limit, we will lose," he said. Along with the speed corridor, the accident rate on those highways decreased by 23 percent. Reducing the accident rate, especially on highways, is not an easy task in the world literature.
The number of fatalities in the 3 km radius with model traffic vehicles decreased by 26.40 percent and the number of fatal accidents decreased by 17.52 percent. We achieved a serious decrease in pedestrian deaths especially with the step of pedestrian priority traffic understanding ”
"OR COMPLY WITH THE RULES OR ..."
Noble addressed the bus company owner in Turkey, stressing that the most insecure ride the bus ride in Turkey, "the world's safest bus ride to ride. Sorry, it is now the most insecure trip bus ride in Turkey.
I call out to bus companies, you follow the rules. You are using a driver where you will use two drivers. I know very well what you are doing. they take two driving licenses, no sleep, no rest. Your driver's license comes out of one tachometer and the other enters. This is a murder.
A total of traffic accidents in taxis 0.9, 1.1 in trucks, 1.5 in the bus. We cannot accept such a thing. We declare strict management on buses. We either follow the right rule or explain the most insecure bus companies every 3 months. ”
WE WILL REACH 35 THOUSAND TRAFFIC STAFF
Stating that they will increase the number of 31 thousand 500 traffic personnel to 35 thousand, Soylu said, “We have identified 14 thousand honorary traffic inspectors. We do their trainings. We increased the number of 19 thousand traffic police to 3 thousand in the last 27 years. At the same time, we increased the number of traffic personnel of 500 thousand gendarmerie to 4. We reached the total number of 500 thousand 31. We will come to 500 thousand and we will stop. ”
