During an emergency, the number of traffic accidents decreased by about a quarter.
The representative of the State Police, Juris Yanchevskis, said that the growing share of drunk drivers can be explained by the fact that during the emergency, alcohol consumption among the population as a whole increased.
“Our observations suggest that during self-isolation people often sit at home and prefer to spend time in vain, so they drink more. Perhaps it is possible to draw parallels here. ”
At the same time, according to statistics, the number of aggressive drivers has dropped significantly this year. At least three times.
