As many as 6,686 people lost their lives and 8,600 were injured in a total of 4,891 road accidents in 2020 in Bangladesh.

The figures were revealed in the Bangladesh Passengers Welfare Association’s (BPWA) annual road accident monitoring report for 2020.

It means on average, roughly 18 people were killed every day in road accidents across the country.

Experts said small vehicles — defying a ban — ply highways and often collide with large vehicles, which leads to a staggering number of fatalities on roads.

Two other major reasons behind the accidents are disorderly movement of vehicles and the reckless attitude of drivers, they said.
