Police increase controls on roads following high number of accidents at start of holiday season

Police are stepping up controls following a high number of deaths on Czech roads at the start of the holiday season. More officers than usual will be on duty on the country’s road network throughout the weekend. Meanwhile, a major nationwide road safety operation will begin on Monday and also involve the police services in states neighbouring the Czech Republic. So far this month around 80 people have died in car accidents, most of which occurred at weekends.
