Comparison of traffic accident fatalities

Some time ago we published some scary statistics of the likely cost of a car accident in different European countries.

We've now found a website where you can see the relative likelihood of having a fatal car crash, country by country, in relation to the number of cars in that country. There's also a chart of the number of road deaths per one billion vehicle kilometers. Not a very cheery subject, we admit, but you'll be pleased to hear that the UK does pretty well, as does most of western Europe, although Belgium needs to improve, and Slovenia is clearly somewhere to avoid!

At least you can make sure you avoid breaking local traffic laws by visiting the Drive-Alive pages about traffic laws in Europe.
