The figures are very similar to those recorded in the same campaign a year ago, showing that the huge effort to get people to take care on the roads during a celebration that is traditionally fuelled by alcohol, are effective.

In 2012 there were four deaths, and in 2011 there were seven deaths. Last year there were officially no deaths, though one man was reported dead after the seven days ended, from injuries sustained during the seven days.
