BY GILBERT BAYORAN
The police reported yesterday that 103 persons have been killed in various vehicular and road accidents in Negros Occidental last year, which is less than the more than 150 deaths recorded in 2007.
Police investigations show that the failure of some drivers to follow traffic rules and regulations, mechanical trouble of vehicles, sugarcane spillage along the highway, and road conditions contributed a lot to the occurrence of vehicular accidents,
Records of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office also indicated that 2,255 persons were injured in 2,251 vehicular accidents last year.
