Prague - The number of victims of Czech road accidents went down in 2013 again as the preliminary figure based on police records is markedly lower (581) than the death toll in 2012 (681), which was the record low until now.
The number of road fatalities has been falling since 2007 when it reached 1123. The worst years on Czech roads were 1969 (1758) and 1994 (1473). These data have been collected since 1961.
The most tragic day of the year was July 19 when seven people were killed.
The most tragic month was July (71) and the least tragic was February (33).
The Czech authorities have been seeking to further decrease the number of road accident victims.
Under the national road traffic strategy, the average death toll should not exceed one person a day, or 365 a year.
