Many people fast between the hours of sunrise andsunset during the Moslem holy month of Ramazan(Ramadan).
This temporary lack of food and stimulants may have a deleterious effect on levels of alertness, particularly for persons driving trucks, buses, taxis and cars.
Practice defensive driving, particularly during Ramazan.
The Ramazan Bayramı holiday following Ramadan brings a dramatic increase in intercity traffic and the highest accident rates of the year.
