Results of new road law

Today it is fourth day of a new law at Czech roads. It is much harder than old one and there are some results.

First weekend of summer holidays is traditionally one of the fullest parts of a year in a traffic. Many people end their lives at roads during this three days. But this weekend brought the smallest number of dead people during first summer holiday weekend in 18 years. Six dead people is this result, last year it was 15. Friday traffic still has old rules, 4 people died in this day.

Police continues in controls from last week. But now the municipal police can control drivers too. The law is hard and strict. The driver payed in Pilsen 2000 crowns and lost 2 points from 12. He rode 58 km/h in a town, where is a maximum speed 50 km/h.

The man in Opava drove a car drunken. He lost 7 points and police ban him further ride. He could lost his driving licence for from half to one year and pay between 25 000 and 50 000 crowns.

Even a policeman payed a penalty. He drove off duty, but without lit lights. He payed 200 crowns and he lost 1 point.
