During the nationwide event called Easter, police officers will once again monitor public order and safety in the streets and on the roads during the upcoming long weekend.
From Thursday to Monday, they will focus on busy places and main thoroughfares, they will also patrol tourist areas and risky places where road traffic rules are often violated and traffic accidents occur. They will also check whether the drivers drank alcohol or consumed other addictive substances before driving. This was announced by the spokesperson of the police presidium, Hana Rubášová.
“Traffic police officers will check compliance with the maximum permitted speed, the way of driving, the use of seat belts and restraint systems. Furthermore, the police officers will focus on checking the documents prescribed for driving and operating a motor vehicle, the technical condition of the vehicles, whether the drivers are fully engaged in driving while driving,” said the spokeswoman.

In view of the warmer weather, the police anticipate that bikers will hit the roads. “That’s why they won’t remain a party of interest to the police,” added Rubášová.
Easter is one of the risky times on Czech roads, when holiday drivers also get into their cars and people often travel long distances to visit relatives. There are usually more accidents than on other weekends, often with tragic consequences. Alcohol also plays a role, especially on Easter Monday with the traditional pom pom.
Last year, four people lost their lives in traffic accidents over the long Easter weekend, traffic police recorded more than 700 accidents from Friday to Monday. In the previous two years, the spring holidays were quieter on the roads as government measures against the coronavirus restricted the free movement of people.
The police organizes a similar traffic safety event at Easter every year. This year too, she called on motorists to be more careful, considerate and tolerant. “Don’t overestimate your strengths and be anticipatory,” said Rubášová.
