The EU's deadliest roads
Latvia and Lithuania take honors.
Eurostat, the European Commission's statistical office, has discovered
an east-west divide in road safety. Latvia, Romania, Lithuania and Slovakia
record the highest number of persons killed in road accidents per million
registered passenger cars, with 752, 749, 571 and 507 deaths, respectively. Malta,
Sweden, the UK, the Netherlands and Germany record the lowest ratios with 61,
117, 121, 126 and 129 deaths, respectively.
The report also noted that regions with more registered cars had lower fatalities in road accidents.
