In April 2013, ETSC published a PIN Flash concerning collisions involving an HGV, a bus or a coach. In the European Union 4,254 people lost their lives in collisions involving heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) in 2011, 3,999 in collisions involving light goods vehicles (LGVs) – goods vehicles with a maximum permitted weight below 3.5 tonnes – and 722 in collisions involving a bus, coach or trolleybus, totalling 29% of the overall number of road deaths recorded in 2011. The number of road deaths in collisions with HGVs has dropped in all the PIN countries, Latvia leading the EU countries with an average annual reduction of 14.7% per year, a steeper reduction than the one in the total number of road deaths.
