Road Safety by Seasonability in the EU is highlighted at the Traffic Safety Basic Facts 2015 available at the European Road Safety Observatory of the European Commission. These Traffic Safety Basic Facts contain a comprehensive series of statistical tables with the latest available data from the CARE database of the European Commission.

Although the annual number of people who died in road accidents in Europe has fallen over many years, the distribution of the annual number by month has scarcely changed, with the fewest fatalities recorded in February and the most in July/ August. However, the distribution of fatalities by month varies considerably from country to country, and it tends to vary most in Northern Europe and least in Western Europe. pdf5
