Abstract The 1901 fatal road accidents that occurred in France between 1990 and 1997, excluding commuting accidents, were analysed. The scope of the study included light vehicles, trucks, motorized two-wheelers and bicycles. Victims included drivers and passengers of vehicles as well as pedestrians who were knocked down by vehicles. Data are presented by sector of activity, level of responsibility of the victim, type of vehicle and company size. A typological classification into nine risk classes is proposed.
