The number of people killed or injured in road traffic has been falling steadily for decades. According to the latest figures from the Federal Statistical Office, 2,788 people died in traffic accidents in 2022, 226 more than in the previous year (+8.8 percent). This means that the number of traffic fatalities and injuries increased, but remains lower than before the Corona pandemic.
It can be seen that the trend of fewer and fewer people being injured on the roads cannot be taken for granted. Strong efforts must continue to be made to achieve the goal of even greater safety and fewer accidents.
