The results by country for 2010 and 2017 (see Figure 2) show that road deaths per million inhabitants at EU level went down from 63 in 2010 to 49 in 2017.
Differences between Member States are also decreasing. In 2010, there were still five Member States (Romania, Greece, Bulgaria, Latvia and Poland) with over a hundred road deaths per million inhabitants. In 2017, all Member States were below that threshold. In 2010, the three worst-performing states regarding this indicator stood respectively at 117 road deaths per million inhabitants (Romania), 112 (Greece) and 105 (Bulgaria), while the best performers were Sweden (28), the United Kingdom (30), Malta (31) and the Netherlands (32). In 2017, the worst-performing states were Romania (99), Bulgaria (96), and Croatia (80), and the best Sweden (25), the United Kingdom (28) and Denmark (30).
