June worst month this year for road deaths

01-07-2008

Ninety-five people died in road accidents in the Czech Republic in June, the highest number for any month this year. Nonetheless, it was lower than the figure for June 2007, when 116 people were killed on the roads. Tuesday marks the second anniversary of the introduction of a points system for Czech drivers. When it came in in 2006 there was a dip in the number of road deaths, though fatality rates later returned to previous levels, more or less.
