Road Safety of Young people 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.

More than 62.000 young people were killed in road accidents in the EU between 2004 and 2013, less than a fifth of all road accident fatalities in those countries. Young people are at almost twice the risk of being killed in a road accident than the average member of the population across the EU countries as a whole. pdf5
