In this week's ICE - death on the roads. The Czech police launch a crackdown on bad drivers as accident statistics reach new highs - why does the country have one of the worst road death records in Europe? One country which has succeeded in dramatically reducing road deaths is Austria - we'll be finding out how they managed it. The Pope makes his third visit to Slovakia - is John Paul II trying to stop Central and Eastern Europe from going the way of the secular west? Also this week, Russia's prime minister visits Hungary as Budapest tries to build a new relationship with Moscow, Slovenian's ethnic Hungarians ask for dual citizenship, and Poland's rustic farms become tourist attractions. All this and more in ICE.
