Slovak roads among Europe's most dangerous

Slovakia has the eighth most dangerous roads in Europe, according to the European road safety chart.

The chart was copiled by the EU Committee for Road Safety and a Norwegian transport service, the Sme daily reported on August 1.

Last year, 579 people died in car accidents in Slovakia.

Experts say the high numbers are caused by insufficient experience, a lack of concern for other drivers, bad road conditions and old cars that often do not meet modern safety criteria.
