The number of fatalities resulting from traffic accidents in June increased by 35 percent over the same period last year, according to a recent report from the Cambodia's Road Crash and Victim Information System (RCVIS). The report, released last week, stated that there were 132 deaths out of 1,140 casualties. The data, provided by hospitals, health centres, private clincs and Traffic Police offices in all of the Kingdom's 24 provinces, also pointed to a possible decrease in overal helmet use by motorbike drivers, as only 136 motorbike drivers involved in accidents were wearing helmets. This marked a 13 percent decrease from May 2009.
