26,000 are still dying each year on European roads!

Progress in reducing road deaths in Europe 2010-2015.

Some countries are still making progress on road safety. At a conference held yesterday in Brussels, the European Transport Safety Council presented its annual Performance Index report road safety award to Norway. The country is at the top of the 2015 European road safety league with the lowest road mortality at 23 deaths per million population.

These reports with a solid scientific background which shows that we really need this “wake up call” as progress in reducing fatalities and especially serious injuries on our roads is not at all satisfactory
