As I write this I'm tasting the original Pilsner Urquell beer . Next time I'll try the Budejovicky, the actual Budweiser and not that American poo of the same name.

It's reported that the number of traffic deaths increased in the EU for the first time since 2001. 2001: 54,000; 2014: 25,700; 2016: 26,000. The official presentation will be on Wednesday.

The answer is: traffic calming. Lots of drivers complain about that, but this is the real driver of more safe transport. I am just negatively surprised about Belgium.

There is a significant split in Belgium regarding traffic safety. Flanders is safer than Wallonia.

For 2015, the Wallonia rate is 81 fatalities per 1 million people, which would put it among the unsafest places in Europe to drive in.

In 2015, the amount of traffic fatalities in Wallonia increased by 15% and the number is large enough (from 254 to 291 fatalities) that it's not a case where just a few fatal accidents make a large difference percentage-wise. At the same time, Flanders saw a decline from 328 to 315 fatalities (a rate of 49 per 1 million people).

One can always pick out bad regions...

Brandenburg had 65 fatalities/million inhabitants in 2015 (worst German state) while Berlin in the middle of Brandenburg had only 13 (best German state)...

Urban areas usually have a lower accodent-related death rate, because people drive at lower speed in cities than on long rural highways. That's why Malta has the best score in Europe.

Well, Wallonia is large enough to compare to countries, it has a larger population than the Baltic countries and Slovenia, almost approaching the population of Croatia. It also has a good urban/suburban/rural mix to factor out those potential differences.

Belgium consistently has the worst traffic safety in western Europe for quite some time now. A large factor in the poor ranking of Belgium is Wallonia. Luxembourg also has a poor rate compared to other countries, but the country is very small with a high percentage of foreign traffic, so the fatality rate per 1 million is a less useful measurement in that case.

The situation in Estonia is actually not as good as it seems from this map. Since we have less than 100 traffic fatalities a year in total the number is largely influenced by the occurrence (or lack of) big accidents. Although the number of deaths was low last year (67), the number of accidents and people injured has stayed on the same level since 2012.

Red - deaths. Dark blue - accidents (where people were injured). Light blue - injuries.

This trend has been observed in a fairly large number of countries, where the decline of traffic fatalities appears to be leveling off.

I think a major part is due to the fact that a substantial share of the automobile fleet are now relatively safe cars, so there isn't that much development on passive safety options any more. The next step would be the introduction of active safety accessories, such as automatic emergency braking, but these accessories are mostly limited to high-end models for now.

What you'll see in the Netherlands is that the fatality rate among car occupants continues to drop, but the fatality rate among cyclists is stalling or even increasing. A major factor there are senior bicyclists, who are even more vulnerable.

There is also a reversal between age groups. For a long time, young people (18-29) have had high fatality rates. In the Netherlands, the fatality rate of that group declined by almost 70% between 2000 and 2014, while the fatality rate of seniors went up. People over 60 years account for almost half of all fatalities today.
