More people are killed in traffic: - There is reason to be concerned

the Other day published by the Danish road directorate accident rates for 2019, and here, it appeared, to 199 persons lost their lives in traffic against 171 in 2018. The number of seriously injured fell by two percent from 1862 in 2018, 1822 in 2019.

For the Advise for the Safe Traffic is the accident figures worrying reading, since there has been a rise in the number of deaths at 16 percent in traffic from 2018 to 2019, and the reduction in the number of serious injuries almost did not get to the spot.

The typing of the Council for Safe Traffic, in a press release.

Here, they believe that road safety should receive greater attention, if the accident figures down.

- Looking at the accident figures over the last five years, so there is a good reason to be concerned in several areas. In that period, 22 percent more pedestrians lost their lives or been seriously hurt in the traffic. Among the cyclists is the accident figures have increased by 13 percent, and among motorcyclists, there is an increase in the number of people killed and seriously injured on 6 percent. In the same period it only managed to reduce the number of fatalities and seriously injured drivers with 1 percent, says Jesper Hemmingsen, chief of the Council for Safe Traffic.

Færdselssikkerhedskommissionen has previously set a target that in 2020 must not be killed more than 120 people in traffic, but as it looks right is there a long wait for the objective to be realised.

If it is to succeed in getting the number of fatalities and injuries down, so it requires increased focus and priority on the area, believes the Council for Safe Traffic.

the Statistics reveal that nine out of ten traffic accidents are caused by our behavior. It can f.ex. be inattention, excessive speed, drink driving and the like.

- It is important to Færdselssikkerhedskommissionen take the lead and set the exchange rate, so all work in the same direction and enable coordinated into the areas where accidents happen. It is important that both the behaviour affected, the control increases and to continue to work on creating safe roads and vehicles, if we are to have fewer people killed and injured in traffic. It is Færdselssikkerhedskommissionen previous success with, and it can do so again, says Mogens Kjærgaard Møller, adm. director of the Council for Safe Traffic.

In Færdselssikkerhedskommissionen the new president, Andreas Steenberg from the Radical Left, and vice-president, Kristian Pihl Lorentzen from the Left, both stated that trafiksikkerhedsarbejdet should be the priority, when making a new action plan for how we get the number of traffic accidents down in Denmark.
