The International Road Traffic and Accident Database (IRTAD) of the International Transport Forum (ITF/OECD) published the Annual Report 2014, which comprises asynthesis of the main trends and road safety indicators for the year 2012 and preliminary data for the year 2013. It presents longer-term trends in order to better understand the developments taking place in the different countries. The road fatality count in IRTAD countries was 1.7% lower in 2012 than 2011 whilst mobility, in terms of motorised vehicle-kilometres, remained more or less constant. Although the fatality reduction fits into the long-term downward trend, 2012 saw the smallest reduction in ten years.
