Such accidents like road crash are becoming very common around the world, especially China. The reason for such happenings is violations of traffic regulations. In addition, there is no proper enforcement of laws in the country.
During the year 2015, almost 58,000 people were killed in such accidents as well as got injured, according to the authorities. All these accidents have one similar reason, that is, the violation of traffic laws.
Following and enforcing such laws can reduce the level of deaths that are increasing day by day.
