Road traffic in China – additional information

The number of road traffic fatalities in China varies greatly from region to region. Guangdong, Zhejiang and Jiangsu had been the provinces with the largest number of traffic fatalities. All located in the eastern coastal area of China, they had also been the regions with the most traffic accidents in 2013. On the contrary, only a small number of fatalities had been reported in central and western regions of China. Reasons for this imbalance may be found in less traffic volume as well as the existence of fewer urban congested areas.

In recent years, the number of casualties in traffic accidents has dropped significantly. In 2013, 59,316 people had died and 213,724 people had been wounded in traffic accidents in China, seeing a three percent decline compared to the previous year. Nevertheless, traffic accidents have emerged as one of the leading causes of death in China. The primary reasons may be unregulated road works and a lack of awareness among Chinese drivers. The development of neither road infrastructure nor driving behavior in China had been able to keep up with the increasing number of traffic participants and registered cars. As of 2003, only 24 million vehicles had been registered in China, whereas by 2013 that number had skyrocketed to 126.7 million cars. In 2013 alone, the number of newly registered vehicles in China had amounted to around 20 million cars.
