South Moravia sees increase in road fatalities, number of seriously injured

The region of South Moravia so far this year has seen an increase in the number of road fatalities as well as a rise in the number of seriously injured. Since the beginning of the year, police in the region attended to 4,458 traffic accidents – up by 70. Up to the first of September, 53 people died on South Moravian roads (7 more than the same period last year) and 204 suffered serious injuries (up by 27 cases). The police charged that many motorists remained inattentive or drove dangerously, while some cyclists, who failed to wear helmets or rode after drinking, only deepened the problem.
