Overall Casualty Reduction in OECD Countries

4 January 2010

In his foreword to the Annual Report, Prof Fred Wegman IRTAD President says: “2008 was marked by an overall decline in the number of traffic casualties; and we can only welcome this. The Report contains detailed information on how each IRTAD country performed and on road safety measures implemented over the past five years to reduce the number of traffic casualties. It is a mine of information for all those interested in safety."

The Report which includes data and information from 27 countries, which are either full members of the IRTAD Group, is available here.

IRTAD is the International Traffic Safety Data & Analysis Group of the International Transport Forum of the OECD
