Fatalities in road accidents in Germany
The low volume of traffic caused by the corona pandemic also affected the number of road accidents in March 2020. The number of road deaths fell significantly: According to preliminary results, 158 people were killed in road accidents in Germany in March 2020 (March 2019: 234). Never before since German unification in 1990 have fewer people been killed in road accidents in one month than in March 2020. As reported by the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis).
