According to the European Commission, compared to previous years, fewer people lost their lives on EU roads in 2019. An estimated 22.800 people died in a road crash last year, almost 7.000 fewer fatalities than in 2010 – a decrease of 23%. Compared with 2018, the number fell by 2%. Eight Member States registered their lowest fatality numbers on record in 2019: Croatia, Finland France, Germany, Greece, Latvia, Luxembourg and Sweden. However, progress has slowed in most countries. For the next decade, the EU has set in the “EU road safety policy framework 2021-2030” a new 50% reduction target for deaths and, for the first time, also for serious injuries by 2030.
