The floating village on Lake Washington by WSDOT, on Flickr

Aha, Flickr put the photo title back on with BB Code. It's not perfect but better than nothing

I found this map on the net, dated 1st December 2012. It shows all motorways (but not expressways) in Europe. Does someone know if it's correct\exhaustive? In Italy are missing parts of A28, A31 and the whole A33, A21racc and Catania-Siracusa, that were already open back then.

Why is Budapest bypass on that map when there should not be expressways?

GRA is also missing around Rome, as well as Milan tangenziali.

The middle (northern) section of D1 in Slovakia is little bit longer.

And the section Evzoni-Thessaloniki in Greece is not even divided road, certainly not an motorway. The same goes to M15 in Hungary.
Looks like a shapefile from OSM

Many motorways in Spain and Portugal are missing.

map is quite wrong. at the first sight i have noticed next expressways:
HR - A7 Rijeka bypass, B8 Rijeka - Pazin, D28 Sveta Helena - Gradec
SRB - A1 Beograd bypass, 10 Beograd - Pančevo
MK - A2 Kumanovo bypass
H - 61 Kaposvár bypass, M70, 710, M86, M2, M8, M9

in France I see N113/N572 signed as motorway. in Spain (Catalunya) there are missing C motorways. and Poland with all those tiny parts of S roads

it is just one of those tries of signing european motorways that appear each while, not better nor worse than others.

except for the last opened stretch of M3, everything OK with Hungary (okay, it was opened in january 2013). on the other hand, Austria lacks every S road.

I made a little map of traffic fatality rates in the EU, based on 2013 data.

http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-14-341_en.htm

0-55 fatalities per 1 million inhabitants
55-75 fatalities per 1 million inhabitants
75-100 fatalities per 1 million inhabitants



2013 is the first time in modern history no EU country has a fatality rate of over 100 per million inhabitants.

The scale may seem a little odd, but there are more countries with a fatality rate of more than 20 over the EU average than more than 20 under the EU average.

Green = safe, at or below EU average
Yellow= approaching EU average
Orange = a lot of work to do

Luxembourg is because the heavy through traffic and the commuters from other countries going to work in Luxembourg.

Croatia might be because my neighbour drives there once a year

Luxembourg's small population means the number can fluctuate rather easily. Malta's fatality rate went up 50% in 2013 for the same reason.

Croatia also surprised me though. Slovakia too, in a positive way. Slovakia is the first eastern EU country to achieve a fatality rate below EU average.

I don't like these representations based just on averages. I think they misrepresent reality. I'd like to see some more structured information... standard deviations would be nice, for instance.

In Slovakia, roads are in such bad condition, drivers can't reach speed the accident could be fatal at. That is the only reasonable explanation.

Breaking the countries down to regions should provide reliable results.

I would also like to see a map based on fatalities/(persons*kms driven).
