Every sixth tram in Prague goes too fast

During the last six months of this year 17 trams derailed and 11 crashed with a car in Prague. The accidents were mostly caused by the drivers of the cars, but still, several accidents were made due to speeding.

The inspection has measured the speed of trams 10,564 times this year. 3.1 % of drivers exceeded the speed limit, some of them even by 10 km/h. The last control was made in Vltavska street, in Senovazne square and Charles Square in Prague. 6 out of 48 trams didn’t follow the required speed.

The director of the Prague Public Transport Company Petr Blazek said that the drivers will be sanctioned. The last accident in Prague happened in Palackeho square in June due to the fact the driver of the derailed tram exceeded the speed limit 10 km/h by 9 km/h.
