In 61 out of 81 German Grobstadt, the number of reversed road users has tended to fall in the past five years. A continuously constant racy, however, can none of the studied city with more than 100.Show 000 inhabitants. This has revealed the study "CityCheck Traffic Safety", which the transport club Germany (VCD) has presented on Wednesday in Berlin. It was particularly gratifying that there were no traffic deaths in Pforzheim, Reutlingen and Trier in 2009.
On average, road safety has developed in Bochum since 2004, the VCD announced. Since then, the Ruhrbietstadt has increased by average by 5.27 percent.

The VCD has recommended the municipality to examine the growing interests more precisely and to fix the causes. In order to improve road safety, the city of Siegen had installed additional traffic lights and Fubgangeruberweges among other things.
The statistical examination of the VCD is intended to encourage the Grobstadte in Germany to intensify its traffic safety work and thus reduce the number of inflates. Overall, the accident numbers in Germany are jerking. However, the VCD federal carrier Kerstin Haarmann pointed out that in 2009 averaged in 2009, averaged almost 1100 people in the strain traffic.

In the long term, the VCD wants to bring the number of traffic deadlines with his declaration work to zero. "That this is feasible in coarse dates, Pforzheim, Reutlingen and Trier have shown last year," said the Federal Transporter of the Transport Club.
