Authorities will revise the Road Code to combat road accidents

The country's new reality, taking into account the growing and worrying numbers of road accidents, imposed a revision to the Road Code, which has remained the same since 2008. The matter was under analysis by the Commander General of the National Police, Arnaldo Carlos.


"Accidents are a concern of the Executive and for that reason, there is every need to make an effort, among all the ministerial departments, to reduce this phenomenon that devastates the roads", said Adriano do Rosário, spokesman for the meeting, in a statement seen by VerAngola.

The official recalled that most road accidents are the result of being run over or collisions between cars and motorcycles. The main causes of accidents are excessive speed, dangerous manoeuvres, driving under the influence of alcohol and poor road conditions.

At the meeting, statistics on road accidents in 2022 were also presented. During the year, there were a total of 13,360 accidents (1,134 more than in the previous year), which resulted in 2,999 injuries, 351 more compared to the same period in 2021.

The Chief Superintendent, who is also a member of the Secretariat of the Traffic Order Commission, pointed to non-compliance with the rules of the road code as the main causes of road accidents.

"We will remain incisive in taking action against violators of the rules of the road code", he assured, advising motorists and passers-by to redouble their efforts to comply with the rules contained in the road code.
