ROAD TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS IN THE REPUBLIC OF KOSOVO FOR THE PERIOD 2014-2018

Session

Description

We are constantly informed of traffic accidents with fatal consequences, injuries and material damages, and thus people's lives are transformed into statistics, figures and graphs. We can conclude that fatalities on road traffic accidents reach a high level of serious consequences for family members, society and the state.

For the normal and safe development of traffic, there must be the necessary infrastructure, and when it comes to infrastructure we do not mean only the roads, but any physical object and system that directly or indirectly provides services in the interest of the general public, implying also the legal infrastructure that was lacking especially after 1998 and which still continues to be incomplete.

The number of fatal accidents is disturbing. Based on the statistics, Prishtina region leads with 31% of fatal accidents in comparison with other regions. In terms of the number of accidents with injuries, Prishtina region leads with 34.4%, while in number of accidents with material damage, leads with 48.1% compared to other regions. Road traffic fatalities are tragic cases, and based on numerous statistics and analysis worldwide, every year millions of people lose their lives and suffer injuries (figures range from 1.2 up to 1.3 million people in the world every year).

Based on the statistics of the Kosovo Police, it is clear that they are doing a professional job, but during the analysis of statistics and the conversation (survey method) with persons who bear the burden of responsibility in this area, there is an immediate need for health and life insurance, because we have no analysis of how many injured people have remained paralyzed or with severe health problems.

This issue remains to be analyzed in other periods, but it has been noted as a defect of our institutions that need to plan ahead and take stricter measures to prevent road traffic accidents.
