MOSCOW, February 5 (Itar-Tass) - The number of minor traffic accidents has increased four times in Moscow because of the heavy snowfall and icy conditions.
More than 3,400 such collisions were reported over the past 24 hours, the Moscow traffic police told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
There were also 26 serious accidents, in which 29 people were injured and one died, a police department source said.
Traffic policemen usually register up to 800 minor accidents a day in winter.
Most of the cases were caused by carelessness of drivers, violation of the speed limits and wrong manoeuvring, the source said
There was no increase in the number of serious cases, since jams impeded traffic, with cars moving no faster than at a speed of 10-15 km/h on Monday evening.
Traffic police ask drivers to be careful and not to park cars in the way of snow-removing machines.
The situation remains difficult in Moscow, particularly on all the roads to enter the city and on the ring roads, the police source added.
