The numbers are in, and they are looking good, if not spectacular. In France, during the month of February 2012 the number of people who have died on the roads has dropped dramatically, a record.

During the month, 25.3% less people died in their cars and on their motorcycles. The politicians are all slapping their own backs, since the presidential elections are only a few weeks away. But IMHO, I don't think it has anything to do with politics, but more with a) weather (the coldest we've had in a very long time) and b) the price of gasoline.

The cold weather has made it impossible to ride your motorcycle, or even thaw out your car, and the high gasoline price has made us take out the car/motorcycle for only the most needed trips. Small excursions are out of the picture.

If the authorities want to be honest, they should be showing the number of fatalities per kilometer travelled. But nevertheless, it's safer to be riding down the French roads then it has ever been.
