In November 2011, ETSC published a PIN Flash concerning young people. Young men are four times more likely to die on EU roads than young women. The annual average reduction in road deaths among young people is higher than the corresponding reduction for the rest of the population, but in Hungary, Greece, Poland, Ireland, Finland and Romania the opposite is true and road safety of other age groups has improved more. NTUA Associate Professor, George Yannis stated that: “when adjusted for exposure, accident risk for the 18-24-year-old motorcycle riders (202 deaths per million vehicle-km driven) is 8 times higher than the risk for young car drivers (25 deaths per million vehicle-km travelled) and 25 times higher than the risk for older car drivers (8 deaths per million vehicle-km travelled)”.
