The figures are never good, only less bad. A total of 220 people died in traffic accidents during the months of July and August in Spain, the lowest figure on record.

The statistics were released by Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska during a review of the measures that were rolled out this summer to ensure road safety. The low fatality figure for August is particularly relevant, as it is the month of the year when most travel takes place: 47.8 million people were on the road, according to the national traffic authority DGT.
