Number of road deaths in Iceland 2006-2017

There were 16 reported road deaths in Iceland in 2017. This was a slight decrease compared to the previous year, but an increase of 12 incidents compared to the low reported in 2014.
The Northern European island state is known for enforcing a strict road safety policy in order to ensure the security of its residents and tourists in the country. The Icelandic Transport Authority encourages visitors to familiarize themselves with local weather and climate conditions in order to minimize the possibility of accidents. The same year saw the number of non-fatal road accidents decline to 1,371.

Motorization rate

As of 2016, there were 711 registered passenger cars per 1,000 inhabitants in the country. This was the highest motorization rate since the beginning of the reporting period in 1990, with 2017 having seen a particularly prominent increase.

Car stock

The stock of passenger cars also grew steadily in the same time period. It reached a peak of 240,000 units in 2017, having exactly doubled in size since 1990.
