In February 2008, ETSC published a PIN Flash concerning motorway safety. Over 3,200 people are killed annually on EU motorways. The number represents just 8% of the total number of road deaths in the EU and has been going down steadily. The motorways are safest in Switzerland, Denmark, the Netherlands and Great Britain, where less than two people are killed on average for every billion km driven. The number of deaths on EU motorways has been decreasing in 2001-2006 by 5% yearly, yet it has clearly tended to increase in Greece, Sweden, Hungary and Slovenia.pdf5
