Since the establishment of an independent Czech State 22,000 people have lost their lives in road accidents – the equivalent of the population of a medium district town. The latest results from the Czech EuroRAP programme were launched in November 2011. Results show that head-on crashes and side impact crashes at intersections account for one-third of all road deaths in the Czech Republic. Over the past 5 years, 1,232 people have been killed hitting objects at the roadside – a quarter of all road fatalities. Every fourth fatality is a pedestrian or cyclist. In total 720km of motorways and 5,863km of main roads has been measured and mapped – the network on which nearly one-third of all fatal or serious crashes occur . Safety ratings are available for 341 separate road sections. Latest results show that one-third of the network was rated as high or medium-high risk. Routes in Zlin region were rated as carrying higher risks of fatal or serious crashes.
