Road Safety by Gender in the EU is highlighted at the Traffic Safety Basic Facts 2012 available at the Road Safety Knowledge System of the DACOTA project within the framework of the European Road Safety Observatory of the European Commission. In 2010, 28.759 people were killed in road traffic accidents throughout the EU, a reduction of 41% since 2001 (49.859). The number of people killed in road accidents in the EU decreased between 2001 and 2010 by 41% for males and 45% for females. There are, however, many gender-related differences in individual countries. pdf5
