A traffic accident starts with you

Annually both Curaçao and Aruba deal with an extremely large number of traffic accidents resulting in many deaths and injuries, which is regrettable. Curaçao has about 12,000 traffic accidents per year and in Aruba there are approximately 10,000. By comparison, in Holland, according to the Dutch Scientific Research of Road Safety (SWOV) organization, in 2014 there were about 95,000 accidents. This means that in Aruba there are about 20 times and in Curacao about 16 times more accidents per 100,000 inhabitants than in Holland. According to road safety and driving expert Eric de Bree, this is way too much. During the Prevent Now seminar he will explain using numerous examples how traffic accidents are often the result of a combination of bad and unconscious choices and how drivers can be encouraged to drive safely and defensively.
