But now the war went far away, peace remains, but every year, on average, more than 20 people die, nearly 40 are injured, many are even injured for their whole life. All are caused by traffic accidents, and vehicles including mainly cars, motorcycles, motorcycles are the main cause due to the traffic law disobey of drivers, excessive blood alcohol concentration, spleen, ham mocking of a part of bad traffic participants.
