Bali - and they all come back again

A total of 10 people have died during this year’s Lebaran migration (in 6 days!!) on the island of Bali according to authorities.

In addition to the 10 fatalities, traffic accidents resulted in 10 serious injuries and 26 minor injuries. All casualties were traveling on motorbike. Most of the traffic accidents occurred in the “line of death” which is the route between Tabanan and Gilimanuk.
Police had been urging motorcycle travellers, especially mothers and their children, to use buses. Despite the fatalities, the situation has greatly improved from 2012 where 115 traffic accidents were recorded with 20 deaths, 57 seriously injured, and 127 minor injuries.
