Despite an increase in population by 12%, in Spain, between 2001 and 2009 the traffic fatality rate has dropped significantly, some 50%. These figures have been achieved by making roads safer, repression and educating road users.

For 2009, a total of 2,714 people died on the Spanish roads. 438 of them were motorcycle riders (and 156 mopeds). The 2,714 people represent a rate of 58 people dead per million inhabitants, while that figure was 134 per million in 2001, so quite a decrease.

The Spanish police remain on alert though. “There is still much work to be done. After all, it is unacceptable that more than seven people are dying every day on Spain’s roads. The police commitment remains to reduce this still further, through a combination of worthwhile education and vigorous enforcement of road traffic rules.”

It's kind of strange, or maybe not so, for a country that has bred so many world champion motorcycle racers, like Jorge Lorenzo, Tony Elias and Marc Marquez, that they have such a high motorcycle fatality rate.
