The IRTAD Road Safety Annual Report 2018 provides an overview of road safety performance for 32 countries. The report outlines the most recent road safety developments across IRTAD countries and comparative data for the main road safety indicators. It also offers 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.



Based on provisional data, Norway recorded 106 road fatalities in 2017, representing a 21.5% decrease when compared to 2016 and the lowest figure on record. The mortality rate was 2.0 deaths per 100 000 population, the lowest rate among IRTAD countries. Young people have significantly benefited from the recent strong decrease in the number of road deaths. The National Transport Plan 2018-29 was submitted to the Parliament and includes a new target of no more than 350 killed and seriously injured by 2030.
