Romania has worst road accident rate in EU – report

Bishkek (AKIpress) - romania-bus-crash The report “Road Safety Vademecum: road safety trends, statistics and challenges in the EU 2010-2013” finds that 26,000 road fatalities were reported in the EU in 2013, Polskie Radio reported.

The rate, however, decreased by around eight percent on the year before.

Romania had the worst record last year with 92 deaths per million inhabitants. With an average of 52 deaths per million inhabitants across the 28-nation bloc, Poland came second bottom in the accident league table, with 87 deaths per million – down from 102 per million in 2012.

The best road fatality rates in 2013 were in Sweden and the UK, with 28 and 29 dead per million inhabitants respectively, the report finds.

“Following a slow year in 2011 [across the EU] the number of road fatalities is now again substantially decreasing,” the report concludes.

During the period 2010-2012, the number of pedestrians dieing on the roads in the EU decreased by eight percent, though the number of cyclists killed increased by six percent.
