Abstract: 

In the Netherlands, every year, there are around one thousand deaths and many tens of thousands road users are injured. Compared to other countries, the Netherlands performs very well, and it is one of the safest countries in the world. Currently, the Netherlands tops the world in having the lowest number of fatalities per inhabitant. Dutch road safety policy is often identified as good practice, and the Sustainable Safety vision as leading practice (Peden et al., 2004). Dutch performance commands respect.

Abstract: 

Each year there are about 1,000 road deaths in the Netherlands and many thousands of road users are injured. Fortunately, these numbers are slowly but surely declining. Compared with many other countries, Dutch traffic is among the safest in the world. However, good as it may be, there are still too many traffic casualties every year. Every year, a disaster occurs that society does not experience as such and therefore does not deal with as such. The average Dutchman does not really seem to care about all these anonymous deaths: road crashes are simply part of life.
