Traffic accidents, drink-driving, buck downward trend
While general delinquency has decreased steadily in Monaco over the last few years, and continued its downward trend in 2019, there has been an increase in traffic accidents and drink-driving, Minister of the Interior Patrice Cellario said at the New Year’s greetings ceremony at the Oceanographic Museum on Monday, January 13.
Year-on-year, traffic accidents rose by 25 percent in 2019, while drink-driving arrests were made for drink-driving offences.
As part of the good news, 2019 marked a sharp decline in burglaries (-23%) and pickpocketing (-73%).
