The number of scooter and motorbike accidents in the neighbouring Alpes-Maritimes continues to increase. According to the prefecture in Nice, the number of fatalities rose from 24 in 2015 to 31 in 2016, an increase of 23 percent in one year.

The authorities say that riders losing control of their machines and the use of drugs and alcohol are the main reasons behind the jump in deaths.

Within the region, two types of roads have posted the worst results, the recreational routes in the backcountry and the busy main roads along the coast used by commuters.
