Mauritius: 117 people died on the roads of the island since the beginning of 2014

117 people have been killed on Mauritian roads since the beginning of 2014, while 122 people have been killed during the same calendar period in 2013.
It is thus 108 fatal accidents that have been recorded from January 1 to Mauritius against 106 listed last year for the same period.

Two-wheelers drivers are the most affected by this road carnage, with 45 against 37 victims identified there a year on this same time.
For their part, 31 pedestrians were mowed down this year on the roads of the island, as reported by the Mauritian newspaper L'Express.
As a reminder, the Mauritian authorities have focused on the introduction of the license penalty point on May 10, 2013 and the multiplication of speed cameras on the island, to curb the road carnage in recent years well as the obligation from 2014 for motorcyclists to wear a reflective vest at night.
