In addition to mapping accident-prone points, he said, due to the high number of accident incidents in the Bantul area, the Bantul Police Satlantas Unit is also conducting an analysis of the hours prone to accidents.
“From the data that has been collected, it is known that accidents most often occur in the morning and evening,” he said.
Based on data from the Bantul Police Satlantas Police Unit, the number of traffic accidents in this area in February was 156 cases, or decreased from data for January 2023 of 162 cases.

He revealed, from this data the comparison of traffic accident incidents from January to February counted down 3.7 percent, while fatalities tended to increase 57 percent.
“Most of the traffic accidents in January and February were due to driver negligence. On the other hand, single accidents also dominated the incidents in the last 2 months,” he said.
