Slovakia leads on cutting road deaths

15 July 2014

Slovakia has made the most progress in saving lives since an EU target to halve road deaths by 2020 was set four years ago, according to ETSC’s latest Road Safety Performance Index (PIN) report.

Data for the period 2010-2013 reveal that Slovakia made a dramatic 37% reduction in total deaths of road users. The Slovakian government received an award in recognition of this progress at an event in Brussels hosted by ETSC last month
