Despite a higher number of unused, as little people have been killed in German road traffic last year as never since 60 years. In 2010, 3648 people lost their lives on German dulls, 12 percent less than a year earlier, the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) announced this Wednesday. Compared to 1970, the so far "black year" the accident statistics with 21.332 death pain is this number even brought to around a sixth, the authority succeeded.
At the same time, 2010 was the most accurate year for eleven years. The police collected around 2.4 million underwear nationwide, which were 4.2 percent more than in 2009. As a common reason for both developments, Destiis calls the hard and long winter. Obviously, people were on the snow or ice-covered, some places hardly staggered trenches slower on the road than in milder winters. The worst consequences have according to Destatis unfallow "unexpected speed" take back. 40 percent of all deaths in the sowing in 2010 went back to this cause of the accident.
For the first time for five years, more children came to death in 2010. The number of trucks under the age of 15 rose by 16 percent to 104 children compared to the previous year. Almost every second of the young traffic victims luck as a rider in a car. In almost all other ages, the number of accident victims was back.
Although there was also a decline in the number of totets in the 18- to 24-year-old years, this age group with most car driving centers after Destatis findings is still by far the strongest danger. Measured at the population, the risk in this age group (102 totete each one million inhabitants) is more than twice as high as on average of all ages (45 getotete each one million inhabitants). At the previous year, the number of toten 18 to 24-year-olds declined by 13 percent to 690. Even with the seniors from 65 years, the number of getoten with a decrease was 18 percent to 910 people jerked.
Within the 27 EU Lander, Germany lay with 45 getotenten one million inhabitants on the fold place. The objectives given by the EU, which halve the quantitative number of traffic deadlines in comparison with 2001, has missed Germany with a decline of 48 percent but scarce. EU-wide fell the number of metotes in the strain traffic after leading results of the European Commission from 2001 to 2010 by 44 percent.
