    Agra: A reply to an RTI query has revealed that since the commissioning of Yamuna Expressway, 4,956 accidents occurred in 2,053 days from August 16, 2012 to March 31, 2018.
    The data sought by RTI activist K C Jain revealed that 1,161 accidents were caused by speeding, 595 were caused by tyre burst and 235 were caused by fog while in 2,965 other cases, accidents were caused by a variety of factors including the driver falling asleep at the wheel, a hit by another vehicle and so on.

    According to Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA), these accidents took 718 lives and injured 7,671. The highest number of casualties was recorded in 2017, with 146 deaths in 763 accidents.

    According to the data, in just the first three months of this year (till March 31), 3.04 lakh vehicles were caught by the cameras for speeding, while in five years and eight months a total of 2.33 crore vehicles were caught speeding.

    Speaking on condition of anonymity, a senior official of Jaypee Infratech, the private concessionaire handling the operations of the expressway said, “We have installed impact attenuators and bull nose barriers on the expressway, to reduce the impact of accidents. Special attention is being given to entry and exit points of the expressway. Currently, there are over 200 bull nose barriers on the expressway, which are filled with water so as to reduce the impact of vehicles’ collision.”
