During the extended Easter weekend, i.e. from Friday to Monday, seven people died in traffic accidents in the Czech Republic this year, which is the most since 2016. Last year, accidents during the Easter weekend had two victims. This follows from preliminary police statistics. In previous years, the number of victims of accidents on Easter holidays ranged from two to six. In 2016, when Good Friday was a public holiday for the first time, seven people died, just like this year.

This year, no one died in accidents on Good Friday, which fell on March 29. On Saturday, the police recorded three accident victims and four on Sunday. Easter Sunday was also the most tragic day of March this year. There was no fatal traffic accident in the country on Monday.

One person 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.
