According to the statistics of the Estonian Traffic Insurance Fund (LKF), there have been 14,800 traffic insurance cases with a total loss of EUR 30 million in Estonia in five months this year. This is the highest number of accidents ever during this period.

"At the beginning of the year, growth of traffic accidents was affected by snowy and icy winter, but there were also more accidents in the spring months than in previous years", said Ulli REIMETS, the head of LKF's loss prevention division.

REIMETS emphasized that the number of road users would increase during the summer months. "Compared to the rest of the year, collisions during passing, road trips, injuries to cyclists and accidents during parking are more common in the summer months. Most traffic accidents occur on weekdays between 12 pm and 1 pm and from 4 pm to 6 pm, and on weekends from 12 noon to 3 pm", he explained.
