June road deaths figure heading for record low
Preliminary police statistics released Wednesday suggest 71 people died on Czech roads during June. That figure is a record low for the last 21 years. The previous June minimum was set in 2009 when 79 died with a maximum in June 2003 with 147 deaths. The Ministry of Transport is counting on road deaths this year not exceeding 650, which would be a record minimum for a whole year.
