On this map we can see the number of people that are reported as deceased within 30 days as a result of a traffic accident. These numbers exclude suicides.
The data comes from CARE, the European Union’s road accidents database. Care gets their data from the government of each member country. Those governments collect the data based on police reports.
Two countries that clearly stand out in a negative way, are Bulgaria and Romania. with more than 80 road fatalities per one million people, their roads are far more deadly than any other EU country.
On the other end of the spectrum, we also see one country that stands out in a very positive way. Liechtenstein reported no road fatality at all in 2019. Impressive, but also not too surprising for a country as small as Liechtenstein.
