Fewer fatal traffic accidents in Iceland

Two have lost their lives in traffic this year, a record low number for the first five months of the year since 2001. Police believe increased supervision and publicity about safe driving has caused drivers to be more careful.

“But two fatal accidents are of course two too many,” duty officer at the capital region police traffic department, Baldvin Viggósson, told Fréttabladid.
