Number of road deaths in the Netherlands 2006-2017 In 2017, 613 people were killed on roads in the Netherlands. Between 2006 and 2017, road traffic fatalities had seen a net decline of 24 percent, with the peak recorded at the beginning of the reporting period in 2006. The Dutch Government is dedicated to making its roads even safer in the future and aims to bring the number of road deaths down to below 500 by 2020. The Netherlands ranked in the mid to lower end of European countries most prone to road deaths. In 2017, the Benelux country had seen 36 incidents per one million inhabitants.

Perceived causes

According to a 2017 survey, close to half of Dutch residents believed that the most common cause of fatal accidents on motorways was inattention. By comparison, 27 percent saw drowsiness as a likely factor contributing to the number of road deaths.

Car stock

In contrast to the steady decrease in fatal accidents, the Netherlands had become home to a growing number of passenger cars. Following a continuous increase since 1990, there were 8.2 million such vehicles registered in the country by 2016.
