During an extended weekend, police inspected more than 14,000 vehicles, discussed on the spot or reported more than 2,500 offenses. Violations of speed limits were among the most common. This was stated by the spokesperson of the police presidium, Hana Rubášová. The total amount of fines imposed reached almost 1.2 million crowns. The police deployed 1,400 police officers to the security operation throughout the Czech Republic.
Police officers always check compliance with the rules to an increased extent during the holidays, as summer holidays are regularly among the most tragic on the roads. According to a spokesman, prevention is the main purpose of increased controls. Already at the beginning of the holidays, BESIP pointed out that in the past decade every year during July and August, about 125 people died in accidents in the Czech Republic, and another more than 550 people were seriously injured. The most common cause of tragic accidents is speeding.
A similar event as last weekend took place at the end of June from 25 to 27 June. At that time, the police deployed over 2,400 police officers, more than 4,300 traffic offenses were discussed, and more than a third involved speeding. The total amount of fines exceeded 1.8 million crowns.
Intensified police checks can be expected in the coming days. Police officers focus mainly on adhering to the permitted speed and driving style, using seat belts, the technical condition of motor vehicles or making phone calls while driving. According to BESIP, police officers often have similar features. Drivers go through fatigue when moving on holiday. This often leads to inattention and thus to accidents. They therefore appeal to drivers not to hurry on the roads and to take repeated breaks.
