90.1% of people who ride electric bicycles and wear helmets
It has been implemented for 15 days that helmets must be worn for riding electric bicycles. Yesterday, the reporter learned from the traffic police department that from today, there will be severe penalties for not wearing a helmet. The fine is 20 yuan for the first time, 50 yuan for the second time, and the unit or the community will be reported to the community if the helmet is not worn three times.
According to the "Regulations on the Administration of Electric Bicycles of Jiangsu Province" and the notice of the city's public transportation police department, starting from July 1, safety helmets must be worn when riding electric bicycles. In order to further improve the education and guidance, before July 15th, our city issued a warning for the first time those who did not wear it, and imposed fines ranging from the amount for the second time and above. As of yesterday, the city had a total of more than 16,000 warnings and more than 3,000 penalties, including 198 penalties for takeaways and couriers.
With the increase in the rate of wearing helmets, electric bicycle accidents have been significantly reduced, and casualties have dropped significantly. According to monitoring, the rate of wearing helmets in the city has continued to rise since July 1. Yesterday, the monitored intersections reached 90.1%. Statistics show that from July 1 to yesterday, the number of traffic accidents in urban areas fell by 31.8% year-on-year, the number of accidents fell by 25% year-on-year, and the number of deaths fell by 33.3% year-on-year. Judging from the distribution of accidents, the casualties of accidents in urban areas are significantly lower than in rural areas. Statistics found that 70% of injuries and 83.3% of fatal accidents occurred in rural areas, which is consistent with the relatively low rate of wearing helmets in rural areas.
