Road Crashes

Vision Zero 2030

Statistics and Indicators

This section will present national and international publications with the main road safety indicators and statistics.

Road Safety Reports

The road safety reports are essential to prepare the Vision Zero 2030, since they provide the portrait and evolution of road crashes and road inspection, in addition to analysing other important components and variables in the study of road crashes.

You can read here the latest monthly and annual reports, as well as the most recent international documents on road crashes.

Road Safety Report

In 2020, the National Road Safety Authority (ANSR) started to provide detailed monthly reports on road crashes for the previous month, not only to make society as a whole aware of road crashes, but mainly to identify the main problems and the most critical areas, so that everyone involved in the system, from infrastructure managers to health services, security forces, emergency and rescue entities, the auto industry, sector associations, non-governmental organisations, universities, schools, justice, drivers, and society as a whole can play a role in fighting road crashes.

These reports present data on road crashes and inspections in several dimensions – days of the week, times, weather factors, nature, location, type of road, district, user category, vehicle category, road management entity, and location – as well as a comparison with the same period in the previous year.

Road Safety Report 2019

The 2019 Road Safety Report allows us to assess the road crash rate and compare the main indicators Europe-wide and also in relation to three selected reference countries when drawing up the National Strategic Plan for Road Safety (PENSE 2020): Spain, France and Austria.

The analysis of road crashes focuses on the three most direct actors: the Driver, the Vehicle and the Infrastructure, and the main aspects related to Inspection. The report also discloses estimates of the social and economic costs of road crashes, in other words, the costs that are not incurred by the individual involved, but by society as a whole, as well as the geographical breakdown of road crashes on the national road network.
