France: 2008 Good Year For Road Mortality Rate

With very strict speed rules, and its resulting enforcement thanks to digital radars, France has had its 7th year of road death reductions. In total, 4,274 people died on the French roads, compared to 4,620 in 2007.

16.3% of the deadly accidents last year were caused by alcohol consumption. The largest user groups that had less deadly accidents were pedestrians (-13.6%) and cars (-4.9%). There were more bicyclists involved in deadly accidents (+3.8%) and more trucks (+9.9%). No data was supplied regarding motorcycle related deaths.

Young people, aged between 18 and 24 represented the lion share of mortality; 23.4%.

So in one hand we've got a lot of repression, radars, check points, etc which is not cool, but on the other hand, more and more lives are being saved, and less and less accidents. It also means that at the very least, insurance rates are not increasing. And that is a good thing.
