Also, dozens of people were killed and hundreds of others wounded in separate traffic accidents during the three days of Eid al-Adha in some provinces of the country, as 9 people were killed and over 400 injured in separate traffic accidents during the three days of the Eid al-Adha in just Nangarhar and Ghazni provinces. He urged families and related officials not to allow anyone to drive a car without a license. In the last three months, about 1,600 people died in various traffic accidents across the country. Car-to-car and car-to-motorcycle crashes are reported to be the nature of these incidents, and the recklessness of the drivers is considered to be the cause. Damaged driving routes, corruption in traffic institutions, substandard roads, reckless drivers and violation of traffic law, sigh speed and lack of traffic signs on the roads, addicted drivers, competition among transport companies and ignoring safety rules are reported to be the major contributors to traffic accidents, which are responsible for a significant share of traffic-related fatalities in the country.
