Poland continued its positive trend in road safety in 2017, with 2 831 fatalities, a decrease of 6.4% compared to 2016. This is the lowest number of road deaths since systematic record began. In 2017, Poland had a mortality rate of 7.4 deaths per 100 000 population, ranking Poland 27th out of the 32 IRTAD countries with validated data. The current road safety strategy covers the period 2013-2020. Its main target is to reduce the number of road deaths by 50% and the number of people seriously injured by 40% between 2010 and 2020. Poland is on track to reach its fatality target but not the injury target.
