192 people were killed and 305 wounded in June in traffic accidents, the Ministry of Interior reported Sunday.

The statistics showed that a total of 338 traffic accidents were recorded in June, resulting in the damage of 424 vehicles with a financial loss of about 2.5 million Libyan dinars.

The figures showed an increase in fatalities in June compared to last month, despite the number of traffic accidents recorded in May was much higher.

The competent authorities attributed the significant number of accidents to high-speed driving and lack of respect for traffic laws and regulations, in addition to poor roads and the invalidity of vehicles.
