Casualty figures also in decline
Much like road fatalities, the number of road traffic casualties declined over the past decade. A total of roughly 18,500 individuals had reportedly been injured in 2018, with figures 26 percent lower than eleven years prior. This was despite a slight increase in the past three years.
Denmark records highest fatality numbers
Among Scandinavian countries, Denmark recorded the greatest number of road traffic related fatalities, which amounted to 32 per million inhabitants. By comparison, fatality figures were lowest in Norway at 20 fatal accidents per million inhabitants.
