An NTUA Diploma Thesis titled “Road Safety Benchmarking in Greek Regions” was recently presented by Kostas Michailoglou. This Diploma Thesis revealed that the number of deaths per 100.000 population depends on the income per inhabitant  and the number of vehicles, the number of physicians and the density of each district and the unemployment. Thessaly, the Ionian islands and Central Macedonia appear to have the best road safety performances, while Peloponnese and South Aegean have the worst ones. pdf5 ppt5
