Death toll falls

ONLY four people died on Alicante provinces main roads in July and August.

Despite the huge numbers of vehicles on Alicante’s main roads in those months there were just four serious accidents.

This is a huge improvement on last year when there were 10 accidents and 10 deaths on the province’s main roads. 

Across the whole of the Valencian Community 12 people lost their lives in 10 accidents on the main roads between July 1 and midnight on August 31. 

This translates into 65 per cent fewer accidents in the region’s three provinces and a 60 per cent reduction in fatalities compared with the 2012 summer season.  During the same two months last year there were 29 accidents and 30 deaths, said the General Traffic Directorate (DGT).

The heartening reduction, with figures comparable to the 1960s when there were far fewer cars on the road, was repeated in Castellon.
