ETSC has launched the PIN Annual Report at the PIN Annual Conference, which took place in Brussels on Wednesday 20th of June 2012. In 2011, approximately 30,100 people were killed in the EU27 as a consequence of road collisions. Ιt was a mixed year in terms of developments in road safety in Europe. While several countries continued the positive trends of 2010 and 2009, others, including Estonia, Cyprus, Malta and road safety role models like Sweden, Germany and Finland, saw increases in the number of road deaths. Greece with a 30% decrease in road fatalities since 2008, managed to break the barrier of 100 road fatalities per million population (96 for 2011), best performance since 1964!
