Poland is seeing a steady improvement in road safety. Official figures reveal that there were 821 fatalities from road crashes in the first six months of 2023, a drop of 7.5% compared to the same period for 2022. There were 9,394 crashes, a 7.4% drop, for the first six months of 2023 when compared with the same period for 2022.
Road fatalities in Poland’s capital fell by 17 while road deaths in Wroclaw dropped by 99. The data comes from Poland’s Central Statistical Office (CSO).
Improvements in road safety have come about due to tougher enforcement to tackle issues such as DUI and speeding. Poland used to have a very poor record on road safety but has seen significant reductions in casualties in recent years.
