The death toll was seven more than in 2017, the PAP news agency reported, citing the traffic department at Polish police headquarters in Warsaw.

Last year saw 31,410 road accidents, 1,350 fewer than in 2017.

The final figures for 2018 are expected to be released in mid-February.

Experts cited by the Rzeczpospolita daily last year said that among the reasons for Poland’s grim accident statistics are sub-standard road safety education, inadequate training at driving schools, and a growing number of high-speed roads that Poles are not accustomed to.
