READING COMPREHENSION TEST # 8
"TRAFFIC ACCIDENT

It was a fine afternoon. The day was Thursday, the 9th of March, 2006. The weather was good. The roads in Monrovia were excellent because the new Government has in the past few weeks been working hard to fix all the bad roads in the City.

UN Police Officer with ID number CP930 was driving a Nissan Patrol jeep with License plate number 422.
