In April 2014, the European transport Safety Council (ETSC) published in its re-designed website a PIN Flash concerning Car Occupant Safety. Around 240,000 car occupants were killed in road collisions in the EU in the years 2001-2012 . There were 12,345 deaths in 2012 compared with 27,700 in 2001, a cut of 55%. Deaths of car occupants were cut by more than the overall death rate (49%) and substantially more than the rate for other road users (41%). Car occupants have therefore benefitted more than other road users from road safety measures adopted over the past decade. This is not surprising, as many of those measures were targeted at car occupants including increased enforcement of the main traffic offences, improved vehicle occupant protection, and, to a lesser extent, improved infrastructure.
