Traffic and security

Hrvatske ceste d.o.o. compiles road safety data continually. Following expert evaluation and specific methodology, the company identifies locations and sections of state roads in Croatia with increased frequency of traffic accidents and casualties.

The number of road deaths was reduced by 90,3%. The number of the severely injured fell by 75,3% and the number of people who suffered light injuries fell by 72,3%.
