We all know the standard of Antalya drivers skill in general is abysmal, even the Turks acknowledge Antalya as one of the rudest and most dangerous places in Turkey to drive!

I gave up posting "accident" news ages ago (I hate that term, 90% of "accidents here are 100% avoidable with 1% thought) because of there being so many but I think its important to show the results of letting your guard down for one minute or for not being completely alert when on the roads here. Ill just add the pics here in this thread on the day they happen, hopefully it will encourage a bit more alertness and if you think its "gods will" or "Allahs will" I hope you can explain that to the families of the others that may get killed too!

Please drive for them as well as yourself, anticipate, be completely alert to everything around you all the time, when you start to let your guard down, answer your phone, drift off, things like this happen :(


Today, first rains for a while, slippery roads and people that dont adjust their driving style or speed in such conditions ....

A lorry driver took a bend too quickly in Alanya last night, lost control after hitting the concrete barrier and overturned his truck carrying tons of pomegranates, juice anyone? The driver had minor injuries and luckily didn't hit anyone else.

A 19 year old boy who was just about to start his military service was riding around Kepez last night on a bike with no lights and didnt see a bus, he was hit and dragged under the bus, passengers called 112 but the boy was dead when they arrived.

3 People died in Manavgat when the driver was going too fast for a bend, overshot and flew into a canal, none were wearing seatbelts and all died, the car and bodies had to be dragged out of a filthy drainage canal.
