BALTRIS countries – leaders in reducing deaths in traffic

The three Baltic countries lead the pack in reducing deaths since 2001 according to the country ranking made by the European Transport Safety Counsil (ETSC). Latvia and Estonia have achieved 61 % reductions while Lithuania achieved 58 % and Sweden 50 %. The EU average is 43 %.

“Setting a common EU target for reducing the number of road deaths was a vital stimulus to reaching these impressive reductions,” said Antonio Avenoso, ETSC Executive Director during the 5th Annual PIN Conference.


The 2011 PIN Awards will go to Sweden and Lithuania recognising their particular efforts in reducing road deaths.
