YEREVAN, October 30. /ARKA/. Some 20,000 motor vehicles are imported in Armenia every year, Armenian Deputy Police Chief Arthur Osikyan said today in the National Assembly during the 2013 draft budget hearings.
He said the growing number of vehicles in the country, particularly in Yerevan, increases traffic accident risks.
At the same time, Osikyan said that the number of the people injured and killed in traffic accidents in Yerevan contracted by 74 and 14 respectively in Jan-Sept 2012, compared with the same period a year earlier.
He explained this decrease by the installation of surveillance cameras in the city.
Now the city has 15 radars and 40 surveillance cameras installed on its ten crossroads and streets.
Osikyan said that more radars and surveillance cameras will be installed in Yerevan in 2013. -0-
