“On Saturday we recorded three people killed and on Sunday four. In three cases it involved motorcycle drivers, in three cases it involved car drivers and one cyclist,” Deputy Director of the Traffic Police Michal Hodboď told Radiožurnál.

One motorcyclist died on Saturday in the Náchod region when he collided with a passenger car between the villages of Nový Ples and Rasošky. Another also died on Saturday near Nová Rabyná in Benešovsk after hitting a guardrail, and a third on Sunday in Havlíčkobrodsk after a collision with a car on the I/34 road between the villages of Jitkov and Ždírec nad Doubravou.


Police will increase checks on the roads over Easter. ‘Non-compliance with the speed limit is a Czech crime,’ says Hodboď

Several car drivers were killed at the weekend after hitting a fixed obstacle while driving off the road. For example, shortly after midnight on Sunday, a passenger car in Brno drove off the road onto a construction site, where one person died and two others ended up in hospital with injuries after hitting a traverse.

Also on Sunday, an 18-year-old driver died in Domažlicka, she failed to make a turn and crashed into a tree.

No one died in accidents this year on Good Friday, which fell on March 29. There were no fatal traffic accidents in the country so far on Monday.

Police have stepped up checks throughout Easter. During them, it checks, for example, whether the drivers are not driving at a higher speed than the permitted speed, as well as alcohol behind the wheel.
