We spend most of our day in traffic. We're always on the roads to make it to school or to catch up with social life. Studies show that time spent in traffic in Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir, has now reached levels that can be measured by days. For instance, in 2014, a driver living in Istanbul spent on average, 219 hours, or 9 days of his life in a year in traffic. As we spent most of our time in traffic, we're also faced with numerous risks. And the risks caused by numerous factors are the biggest of these risks.
And a total of 1 million 300 thousand accident that happened all over Turkey last year kind of proves that. And our biggest saver in those accidents is our liability insurances or comprehensive coverage insurances.
There are around 19 million registered vehicles in our country. Even though liability insurance is mandatory, only 15 million of these vehicles have liability insurance. And figures are much lower with comprehensive coverage policies. Only 5 million vehicles out of 19 million benefit from comprehensive coverage policies. It is crucial to be insured in order to get compensation in possible accidents. On 1 April 2008, a new rule to prepare accident report was brought whereby the parties can prepare their own accident reports on mutually agreed terms.
Number of accident reports created has been increasing gradually over the years. While a total of 491 thousand 31 reports were created in 2008, this figure increased to 811 thousand 155 in 2014. The Mobile Accident Report application allowed the citizens to prepare their accidents report online by aiming to decrease waiting times in traffic and time wasted.
