The number of deaths in the båtolyckor close to halved
"The number of dead in båtolyckor near halving"

"Despite a warm summer, which probably attracted many of the lake decreased the number of deaths in the fritidsbåtolyckor last year. Twelve people were killed in 2018, which is almost a halving from the previous year."

"2018 was a much brighter year in the statistics than 2017. Despite the fact that twelve persons were killed figure is the lowest since the Swedish transport agency began to keep statistics on fatalities in boating in 1971."

"however, It is difficult to say exactly what contributed to the decline last year."

"– the boating season started quite late because it was a late spring and the ice remained for a long time. Then came the heat quickly in the spring and it meant that the water temperature increased and it was also quite weak winds in the spring and during the high season, " says Lars-Göran Nyström, sjösäkerhetssamordnare on the Swedish transport agency, and continues:"

"– We also believe that when the weather is fine, is more out there and consequently, it is not so far away to help, or that people see that something happens. When it is warm in the water buys you a little time."

"All who perished in 2018 is adult men, but the accidents are different."

"– It stands out a little bit is a vattenskoterolycka, a canoeist and a kitesurfer. It also wont be many fishermen who happen to hurt, three of them among the twelve, " he says."

"That is always the advice when you are at sea to wear a life jacket and be sober, at least half of the fatalities tend to be alcohol-related, according to the Swedish transport agency."

"more Detailed statistics"

"the Number of fatalities has declined steadily in recent years, and since 2012, the Swedish transport agency together with several other authorities and organizations actively worked to improve maritime safety to prevent accidents and deaths."

"When we started with it, you knew how many died, but not what they died of," says Lars-Göran Nyström."

"Three measures which are important to consider:
