Number of road deaths in France 2006-2019

The number of road traffic fatalities in France decreased from 4,709 in 2006 to 3,268 in 2013. It grew again between 2013 and 2016 to then reach its lowest point in 2019, with 3.244 deaths.

Alcohol- and speed-related offenses in France

Yet, according to a survey conducted by the French National Inter-Ministerial Road Safety Observatory in 2014, 56 percent of the respondents believed that not enough was done to prevent and control drink driving. Further, 69 percent of those surveyed also believed that police enforcement against drug consumption on the road was lacking. Nevertheless, the same institution reported that, in 2015, ten percent of all the road offenses recorded more than 100 times were related to alcohol. Offenses related to speed control accounted for almost 30 percent of all the road offenses.

The European perception of road fatalities

On the other side of the Rhine, in Germany, where the consumption of alcohol seems to be more widespread – with around 137 liters of alcoholic beverage per capita in 2014 - the authorities seem to have managed to reduce the number of road traffic fatalities more efficiently. It went from 5.091 deaths reported in 2006 to 3.180 deaths in 2017. From a European perspective, 62 percent of Europeans believed that driving under alcohol or drugs influence was the main general cause of fatal accidents on the road in their respective countries.
