Vulnerable road users benefit less from improved road safety
2014 Road Safety Annual Report presents latest road safety data
The number of road fatalities fell by 1.7% between 2011 and 2012
in the 31 countries covered by the International Road Traffic and Accident Database
(IRTAD), according to the International Transport Forum at the OECD.
However, road safety policies are not succeeding in improving protection for
vulnerable road users. The latest available data show that reductions in road deaths
among pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists have levelled off since 2009/10. In
some cases, increases have been recorded.
