Experts are considering the lowering of the maximum speed on highways from 140 km/h to 130 km/h, as it was until recently. At the double highway pile up on Trakia highway on Monday, most of the cars were driving at 140 km/h. The high speed, combined with the thick fog in the area caused the crash of 21 cars. Two people were killed and 15 were injured. According to Vladimir Todorov, chairperson of the Bulgarian Association Of Traffic Accident Victims, the 140 km/h speed limit encourages drivers to go at 150 km/h, as traffic police usually ignores speeding with up to 10 km/h. According to Todorov the condition of roads and automobiles in Bulgaria is not appropriate for such high speeds. Meanwhile, a recent EU report found that Bulgaria is among the EU member states with highest number of deaths in traffic accidents. In 2013, they were 82 per 1 million residents and remains unchanged, compared to 2012. In 2001, however, it was 124. In 2013 in Romania died 92 victims per 1 million residents, followed by Luxemburg and Poland with 87 deaths, Latvia and Croatia with 86 and Lithuania with 85.
