image of Road Safety Annual Report 2017

The IRTAD Road Safety Annual Report 2017 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.

The report outlines the most recent safety data in IRTAD countries, including detailed analysis by road user, age group and type of road. It describes the crash data collection process in IRTAD countries, the road safety strategies and targets in place, and information on recent trends in speeding, drink-driving and other aspects of road user behaviour. The 2017 edition of the IRTAD Road Safety Annual Report puts special emphasis on road safety for an ageing population, which represents a growing concern in many countries.

Foreword

International Transport Forum

It is with great pleasure that I present the 2017 edition of the Annual Report of the International Traffic Safety Data and Analysis Group (IRTAD) which contains the most recent road safety data and up-to-date information on road safety measures and strategies for 40 countries. This year’s report contains information from an additional country – Uruguay – raising to four the number of Latin American countries covered by this report. The expansion of the IRTAD Group is a positive step and the intention is to continue this growth, without compromising the quality of the data. This report therefore makes a distinction between “validated” data (available for 2015 data for 31 countries) and data and information that is “under review”.
