Czechs mark No Rush Day on April 3

Prague’s Astronomical Clock was momentarily stopped at 10 am on Wednesday to mark a nationwide No Rush Day initiative aimed at highlighting the dangers of rushing, especially on the road. When the clock stopped, the Grim Reaper struck the hour 138 times for every life lost last year due to speeding.

No Rush Day was initiated by the Czech Association of Insurance Companies and dozens of institutions and companies have supported it.
