A new report by the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) has been released end of October, 2021.
The report "Reducing Road Deaths among Young People aged 15 to 30 - PIN Flash Report 41" looks at the progress made in Europe in reducing road deaths among young people. It is based on the latest available data from the 32 EU and non-EU countries that participate in ETSC’s Road Safety Performance Index (PIN) programme, examining trends over time as well as differences between countries, which are very significant. For example different regulations, traffic volume, population structure, speed limitations, infrastructure, as well as the general effect of an ageing population and the influence of the Covid-19 pandemic can be important factors.
The format, now familiar to readers of past PIN reports, comes in three parts: Part 1 looks at road deaths, Part 2 at serious injuries, and Part 3 at the broad array of countermeasures that are in effect, or should be considered.
