Accidents in the Mettupalayam Police Station in the last few years since 2005 has commendably come down by about 25%, from around a 100 accidents to about 75 in 2010. This drop can be attributed to better policing, improved traffic management, and also increased driver awareness. However the end result shows some skewed figures, where the no. deaths has varied from 18 to 20 to 24 to 34 to 18 to 21. As there is no information as to the varying levels of deaths, one only ponders how this figure has come about. Taking some consolation that there have also been years where the number has crossed 30, its still high at 21. Some may suggest that the accidents could be high speed or in large vehicle related ones. Only facts and data can clarify this cloud.
