The 2016 road safety statistics released by the Commission on the 28 March 2017 at the Road Safety conference in Malta show a drop of 2% in the number of fatalities recorded across the EU last year. 25,500 people lost their lives on EU roads in 2016, 600 fewer than in 2015 and 6,000 fewer than in 2010. A further 135,000 people were seriously injured on the road according to Commission's estimates.

Following two years of stagnation, 2016 marks the return of a positive downwards trend and over the last six years, road fatalities have been cut by 19%. While this pace is encouraging, it may nevertheless be insufficient if the EU is to meet its target of halving road fatalities between 2010 and 2020. This calls for further efforts from all actors and particularly from the national and local authorities, which deliver most of the day-to-day actions, such as enforcement and awareness-raising.

During the conference Transport Ministers of the Member States of the European Union reconfirmed their commitment to improving road safety by endorsing the Valletta Declaration on Road Safety. With this declaration, Transport Ministers have agreed to continue to reinforce measures necessary to reduce the number of road deaths in the the UE by 2020 from the 2010 basline, and enhance cooperation between Member States—including relevant authorities, civil society, research institutes and the private sector—in particular with regard to road safety plans and strategies following a risk-based or an integrated approach.

You can consult the full text of the Valletta declaration and the preliminary country by country statistics for 2016 in the documents below. All the related documents are available on DG Move website and photos of the event are available here.

The roads in the EU are getting safer -- from around 76 000 road deaths per year in 1991 to 26 000 deaths reported in 2013. This is the result of hard work by many actors on local, national and EU level. The EU road safety work focuses on seven objectives for the period 2011-2020: Better education of road users, better enforcement of traffic rules, safer roads, safer vehicles, better use of modern technologies, reducing the number of serious road traffic injuries and improving the safety of vulnerable road users. The EU road safety work is a great success story. Yet, the work is still far from done. Every death is one too many. This video was launched on the occasion of the sixth European Road Safety Day, organised by the European Commission in cooperation with the Greek EU Presidency in Athens on 9th May 2014. The European Road Safety Day is a yearly event that brings together road safety experts, NGOs, policy makers and the industry to find common solutions to European road safety problems.

Road safety work in the EU has made great progress over recent years. Between 2001 and 2010, the number of fatalities on EU roads was reduced by a total of 43%. Between 2010 and 2013, it was reduced by a further 17%. However every road death is one too many - so we need to do more. The strategic target is to halve road deaths between 2010 and 2020 and also to start focusing EU efforts on reducing serious road traffic injuries. To achieve this goal, determined and joined-up action is needed from many actors at EU, national and local level.

Axel Druart (Responsible Young Drivers) recently spoke with us about the European Road Safety Charter’s new mission to engage with vulnerable road users, particularly youth.

“At 16-years-old, you start to be able to drive a motorbike, so you need to know you have to wear a helmet, you need to know the consequences if you’re over speeding. It’s some kind of ignorance because they have never had the experience of a crash.

"As well, alcohol and drugs are very deep issues right now.”

The ERSCharter plans to hold workshops in each of the 28 EU member states for the period 2013-2016. Druart, a road safety expert and avid campaigner, highlights the main aim for these events:

“Our goal is to engage young people and young stakeholders, working in road safety altogether, to connect them, to create synergies, and to create concrete outcomes after the workshops. Mainly we want to exchange ideas, opinions.

"These are the topics that we will bring to the workshops during the European Road Safety Charter.”

Axel Druart was speaking with us as part of the ERSCharter experts’ meeting, held in Barcelona at the end of 2013.

A world authority in road safety, Dr. Venter described how important the Charter is and how it is making a real contribution on Europe’s highways.

He stressed that it is key to engage all EU citizens and encourage both private and public sectors to tackle the issue. Any such collaboration would be of great value to the ERSCharter’s road safety targets.

Dr. Venter added that this joint effort would be crucial to “… make a difference to world road safety conditions and contribute to the United Nation’s Decade of Action for Road Safety”.

You can a full video of this interview with Dr. Venter below.

Dr. Pieter Venter is the Chief Executive Officer of the Global Road Safety Partnership and works as a regional manager for Africa. He was previously a manager of traffic safety for The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).

The EU is introducing a harmonised licence model and minimum requirements for obtaining a licence. This should help to keep unsafe drivers off Europe's roads - wherever they take their driving test.

Transport represents a crucial sector of the economy. This publication provides an overview of the most recent and most pertinent annual transport related statistics in Europe.

It covers the European Union and its 28 Member States and, as far as possible, the current EU candidate countries and the EFTA countries. The content of this pocketbook is based on a range of sources including Eurostat, international organisations, national statistics and, where no data was available, on our own estimates. Our estimates have mainly been produced to get an idea of the EU total.
