Jump to: navigation, search

This list of countries by traffic-related death rate shows the annual number of road fatalities per capita per year and per vehicle-km in some countries in the year the data was collected.

According to the World Health Organization, road traffic injuries caused an estimated 1.24 million deaths worldwide in the year 2010, down from 1.26 million in 2000. Half of all road traffic deaths are among pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists, and adults aged between 15 and 44 years account for 59% of deaths. 3 out of 4 road deaths are among men. The average rate was 18 per 100 000 people (down from 20.8 in 2000). 92% occurred in low and middle income countries, with South-East Asia and Africa having the highest rates.[1]

The total fatalities number comes from the WHO report and is often an estimated number of road traffic deaths based on method used in the report.[1]
