Spain has risen to the fourth lowest mortality rate on the European Union’s roads, according to data released by the European Comission and the DGT.
Spain recorded 29 deaths per million people on the road network last year, placing it behind Sweden, Malta and Denmark, but ahead of the Netherlands, Germany and France.
Last year saw a decrease of 20% in the number of road deaths, with the pandemic being a major reason for the drop in traffic numbers.
Head of the DGT – Pere Navarro – has said now the challenge is to continue to keep the death rate as low as it was last year.
