Summary of road safety performance in 2012 and 2013

International Transport Forum

In 2012 success in reducing road fatalities in the IRTAD member countries was relatively modest, while mobility (in terms of vehicle-kilometres) hardly changed (increase by 0.6% from 20111). At only minus 1.7%2, IRTAD saw the lowest fatality reduction rate in ten years; the more than 79 000 total fatalities of 2011 were reduced by around 1 300, and ten countries faced an increase in 2012, among them New Zealand (+8.5%), Switzerland (+5.9%) and the United States (+3.3%) (see Table 1).
