Title The cost of transport accidents and the cost of safety
Original title Coût des accidents de transport et prix de la sécurité [in French]
Bibliographic information 1997, No.25, p.3-5. Illus.
Abstract The annual social and economic cost of transport accidents is estimated at over 166 billion ECU. This report by the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) provides estimates for the road, rail, air and marine modes of transport on the basis of accident data and costs registered in 1995. Approximately 97% of the total cost is attributable to road accidents, the scale of road transport being greater and its level of risk being higher than for other modes of transport. The ETSC makes several recommendations based on the findings of the report.
