January 2019 month with most road accidents since 2016

Last month saw a rise of five percent in road accidents on January 2018.

Close to 11,000 accidents were registered by police during the first month of 2019, making it the month with the most accidents since 2016.

A total of 44 people lost their lives on Portugal’s roads last month, the same amount as in January 2018, with the deadliest district being Braga, followed by Porto and Santarém.


It is staggering how terrible the driving is here.Not a day goes by without me encountering people cornering well across the white line.People using their phones.Endless early morning drinking in local bars and cafes followed by driving.Speeding with no regard for anyone else.
It is frankly a massive risk everytime people get in their cars here.
