The 2017 edition of IRTAD annual report on Road Safety now available

17 October 2017

The 2017 edition of the IRTAD annual report on Road Safety is now available on the OECD i-library .

It provides an overview of road safety performance for 2015 in 40 countries, with preliminary data for 2016, and detailed reports for each country. It includes tables with cross country comparisons on key safety indicators and puts special emphasis on road safety for an ageing population, which represents a growing concern in many countries.

The positive trend over the last few years of reduced road fatalities did not continue in 2015 and 2016.

The 31 IRTAD member countries for which data is consistently available registered a 3.3% increase in road fatalities in 2015 compared to 2014. In 2016, the number of fatalities increased in 14 countries. Ten countries registered more road deaths for two consecutive years, i.e. in both 2015 and 2016.
