French interior minister Christophe Castaner has announced that France's road deaths have reached a 'historic low' - 3,239 road fatalities were reported last year.
Mr Castaner commented: "This is a historically low number. It's actually the lowest number we have seen since records began. This is because we've brought strong policies to road safety. Our citizens are aware of the risks on the road, and we must, alongside them, help people to understand that behaviour change [and] measures for road safety, are measures that change lives."
