Road Safety in Urban Areas 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.

In 2013, 9.919  which is 38% of all road accident fatalities throughout the EU were killed on urban roads. The number of fatalities in urban road accidents has fallen since 2004 by more than a third (42%), the percentage of all fatalities that occurred within urban areas, however, has increased slightly. pdf5
