Number of deaths on Czech roads over summer holidays lowest since 1990

One hundred and thirty-three people died in traffic accidents on Czech roads over the course of the summer holidays – three fewer than the same period last year and the lowest since 1990. Over the first eight months, however, the number of road fatalities increased by 21 year-on-year, traffic police chief Tomáš Lerch told journalists on Friday. The number could still change based on ongoing investigations where death may have been related to health problems and the accident itself was secondary.
