The European Commission published preliminary figures on Road Safety in the EU, showing that around 20,400 people were killed in road crashes last year, a small 1% decrease on 2022. This represents however 2,360 fewer fatalities (-10%) compared with the pre-pandemic year 2019. It is remarkable that within urban areas, vulnerable road users (pedestrians, cyclists and users of powered two-wheelers) represent almost 70% of total fatalities, whereas EU-wide, more than 2,000 cyclists were killed in 2022.
