Addis Abeba's roads have sustained over seven million Br worth of damages during the ended budget year, according to a report by the city's Roads Authority. Traffic lights, road signs, pedestrian rails and manhole covers sustained the bulk of damages that occurred through 135 highway accidents and 199 traffic collisions on tributary roads. Despite increasing restrictions on the type of vehicles allowed to enter main roads, accidents still pervade across highways. Motor insurance accounts for half of the gross premiums for insurance companies, with 15,000 traffic accidents reported nationally in 2021/2022. Data from Federal Police Bureau indicates that up to 300 deaths yearly occur on the capital's roads accounting for nearly a 10th of the total. According to the report, most of the accidents resulted from drunk driving while overspeeding and driving without a license contributed to the total impact.
