United Kingdom

In 2016, 1 860 persons lost their lives in road crashes in the United Kingdom. Preliminary data for 2017 indicate a similar result with 1 856 fatalities. Overall, the number of road deaths has considerably declined in the past two decades; however, since 2010 the rate of decline has slowed. Currently, the United Kingdom does not have a national road safety strategy, but the government has published a Road Safety Statement, which guides road safety for the immediate future.
