Survey of orthopedic sector of the State Department of Health (Sesa) Amapá shows that over 90% of patients treated by surgery of this area are victims of traffic accidents. Of this total, half are involved with bikes on raids. Only last weekend, 82 people were admitted in emergency care units.

According to the director of the State Hospital Emergency (HE) in the capital, Macapa, Regiclaudo Sousa, the number of individuals taken in the clinic victims of traffic accidents is very high. "Unfortunately, we are faced every day with injured totally drunk. The alcohol causes these people to be careless and end up risking their lives," says the director.

In 2011, the State Traffic Department of Amapá (DMV / AP) recorded 3,692 accidents, 1,831 of them involving motorcyclists. The risk that the person has more severe fractures involving motorcycle accident is much greater, because the helmet is the only protective apparatus.

The Rehabilitation Center of Amapá (Creap), also in Macapa, attended in 2011 a total of 196 patients victims of traffic accidents. In the first half of 2012, this figure is closer to 115. It is estimated that the cost of each patient receiving prolonged treatment in the Unified Health System (SUS) is 2-6 thousand dollars.
