Number of road deaths in Spain 2006-2018

Spain has indubitably made significant progress over the past years to improve safety on its roads, with the latest figures depicting a strong decline in the number of road fatalities, which stood at 1.8 thousand in 2018. Spain was, in fact, one of the European countries where road safety saw a substantial improvement, recording up to 27 percent fewer road fatalities between 2010 and 2016.

Passenger cars and dangerous roads: Spain’s situation

Most of the fatal accidents registered in Spain in 2018 involved a passenger car, amounting to over six hundred of the total number of cases. Once again buckling up is key to increasing the chance of survival upon a road accident – the seat belt was the vehicle safety device that could have saved most lives in Spain in 2018. Furthermore, the European country featured some 70 road sections flagged as high-risk roads, with Girona at the top of the list of Spanish provinces with a higher chance of road accidents in 2018.

The path towards safer roads in Europe is not easy

The European Union will be hard-pressed to meet one of its main strategic road safety targets consisting of cutting road deaths by half by 2020. The information recorded also shows a clear gap between road fatalities in Eastern Europe compared to the rest of the continent, with Romania leading the list of fatal accidents per country in the European Union in 2017.
