Road fatalities down this summer

A major police operation carried out during the summer holiday period has resulted in considerably fewer deaths, accidents and injuries when compared to the same period in 2011.

Called ‘Operation Hermes – travelling safely’, the police initiative was divided into five different phases and aimed to ensure the safety of people travelling during the holiday period. The operation ended last Sunday, September 2.

During the summer period of this year 29 road fatalities and a total of 2,671 accidents were registered in Portugal.
