SUMMER 2017 saw a fall in the number of motorists killed on Spanish roads. Traditionally the busiest period of the year, the DGT reported that there were 224 deaths in July and August, 31 less than in 2016 and a 12 per cent decrease from the same period the previous year.

In July there were 121 fatalities from 110 accidents while in August 103 people died in 96 accidents.

Spanish interior minister, Juan Ignacio Zoido, said: “The data presented, despite being better than last summer, is not sufficient with the death of a single person in a traffic accident.”
