Dhangadhi: The Sudurpaschim Province witnessed a grim toll on human lives as 177 individuals succumbed to road accidents in the past year, highlighting the pressing need for enhanced government regulation in vehicle management.

The absence of effective governance measures, compounded by substandard roads, deviations from construction standards, driver negligence, traffic rule violations, use of non-compliant vehicles, and overloading, continues to contribute to the alarming rise in fatalities on the region's roads.

The National Human Rights Commission, in its annual report, underscored the inadequacy of proactive government initiatives to curtail such incidents. Data from the Criminal Investigation Department of Nepal Police reveals that Sudurpaschim Province experienced 320 vehicle accidents in the preceding year alone, resulting in the tragic loss of 177 lives.

According to the Nepal Police Highway Safety and Traffic Management Office in Attaria, Far West, 177 fatalities were reported in road accidents in the region last year. Comparatively, the financial year 2078/79 witnessed a slightly higher toll, with 196 lives lost.

Breaking down the demographics of the victims, the data from the Management Office indicates that, in the past year, 144 men, 22 women, 6 boys, and 5 girls lost their lives in road accidents in Far West. In the fiscal year 2078/79, the statistics showed 153 men, 27 women, 12 boys, and 4 girls as victims of fatal road accidents, as reported by the Nepal Police Highway Safety and Traffic Management Office.

The concerning rise in fatalities emphasizes the urgent need for comprehensive measures to address road safety, infrastructure standards, and responsible driving practices in Sudurpaschim Province.
