Czech urban safety index launches
ETSC’s Czech member CDV has launched an index of road safety in major cities in the Czech Republic, in association with Generali, an insurer.
The online database includes information on 13 major cities and 206 municipalities across the country and enables users to rank based on a safety index. The index value is calculated based on the ratio of serious and fatal collisions to the total number of collisions. A higher number in the index indicates a lower safety rating. According to the data, the city of Brno currently ranks worst among the major cities. The capital Prague is the third safest, with the top spot taken by Liberec, a city of around 100,000 people, and the fifth-largest city in the Czech Republic.
