WHO has published a European status report on road safety. In 2008, WHO carried out a global assessment of road safety since then. This publication provides an overview of the results for the European Region and 49 country profiles on road safety, based on the data collected in the survey. In the WHO European Region alone, road crashes result annually in 120,000 deaths, 2,4 million injuries and a great economic burden. Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death among people 5β€“29 years old.
