Five deaths on Portuguese roads in first two days of Easter

Data is still provisional, but in the first two days of the GNR’s Easter road traffic campaign over 450 accidents were registered, involving five deaths and 14 serious injuries. Of just over 12,000 drivers stopped on the roads 172 were found to be drink driving, some excessively so. Forty one drivers were discovered driving without a valid licence; 1,655 were clocked speeding; 91 for using their mobile phones while driving. Another 234 drivers were cited for not having a valid MOT. The GNR’s Easter traffic vigilance stays in place until Tuesday April 11.
