Interestingly, July is the traditional month of vacation travel with a temporary break in the rainy season and mid-year school break, as families take the roads for the beaches and mountains.

Alexander Solano, director of the Policia de Transito, expressed his concern about these figures, which could rise with the long weekend celebrating Mother’s Day, on August 15.

According to Solano, speeding continues to be the cause that is most related to road deaths.
