Am I the only one that finds it peculiar that Brabant has such a high percentage of roads with a vmax of 130?

Some of these stretches are very busy (for having only two lanes in each direction) and see a ton of (slow) truck traffic. Aren't there still plenty of roads that are just as suitable as these?

The 'asphalt gauge' that records how many kilometers of new lanes were added during the current administration. 102 km is still under construction.

accidents

The Verkeersinformatiedienst VID, Traffic Information Service, published some statistics regarding traffic accidents per km.

Accidents per kilometer motorway:


The highest incident rate is on A2 at the Empel motorway interchange near 's-Hertogenbosch, where 151 accidents occurred. I'm guessing this is the northbound direction, where there is a relatively short and very busy taper merge to fit onto the Meuse River Bridge.

The fastest-growing accident rate is the split setup of A4 near Leiden. The amount of accidents doubled in 2015 compared to 2014. This project is considered the worst designed in the Netherlands in terms of safety and congestion relief. Traffic was actually safer and less congested during road works than after it was completed.

Rotterdam has 3 of the top 5 accident-prone motorways.

Despite all the vocal opposition to the 130 km/h speed limit and traffic safety, the unsafest motorways have the fewest stretches (or none at all) with a 130 km/h speed limit.
