Road Safety at Junctions in the EU is highlighted at the Traffic Safety Basic Facts 2010 recently released at the European Road Safety Observatory of the European Commission as prepared by the DACOTA project. Almost 8.300 people were killed in road traffic accidents at junctions in the EU countries in 2008, representing 21% of the total road traffic fatalities. This figure represents a 30% decrease in relation to the 10.500 fatalities at junctions since ten years before in 1999. pdf5
