Road Safety of Children in the EU is highlighted at the Traffic Safety Basic Facts 2012 available at the Road Safety Knowledge System of the DACOTA project within the framework of the European Road Safety Observatory of the European Commission. Almost 800 children (<15 years old) were killed in road traffic accidents in the EU countries in 2010. This figure represents a fall of over a half in relation to the 1.862 children fatalities since ten years before in 2001. pdf5
