Despite the ban-on-driving rule, which has a strict 10 p.m. curfew, there have been 101 deaths caused by traffic accidents, according to the Ministry of Public Transportation.

The government has even set curfews for bars to try to control the spread of the covid-19, in the last quarter, from May to August. Based on the ministry statistics, the death toll fell by 33 compared to the 134 deaths recorded in the first quarter of this year, from January to April.

However, the total of registered deaths from January to August is 235, an increase by 46 dead exceeding the deaths reported in the same period of 2020.

According to the traffic police, despite the government rules, reckless driving continues, such as speeding, drunk driving, or invading the opposite lane.



From January to June, more than 2,700 fines for reckless driving have been reported.




In the same period, the traffic police reported 1,703 drivers that tested positive for Driving Under Influence, DUI.
