Road Toll Down To 1960’s Level In Croatia

Deaths on Croatian roads in 2012 returned to 1960’s levels after statistics were released by the nations Ministry of Internal Affairs.

390 people died as a result of accidents on the roads in Croatia in 2012, 28 less than in 2011 and 274 less than in 2008. 2012 statistics are on a par with levels in the 1960’s.

The number of car accidents also dropped in 2012, from 42,400 in 2011 to 37,000.

“We hope that we reach our goal to lower the death rate on the roads and by 2020 have less than 213 people die on the road,” said Darko Grac from the Ministry’s traffic safety department.
