MADRID, 8 Oct. (EUROPA PRESS) –

The mortality of the vulnerable groups on the roads (pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists) has increased by 6% in the last six years. In 2012 died 806 user, while in 2016 increased the dead of these groups, reaching up to 853 deaths.

This is one of the main conclusions of the study ‘The death silent. Road traffic injuries in vulnerable road users: pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists (2007-2016)’, developed by Foundation Direct Line and carried out in collaboration with Centro Zaragoza.

In the past six years, the vulnerable add up to about 10,000 deaths, half of whom were motorcyclists (nearly 5,000), nearly 4,200 were pedestrians, and around 700 cyclists. In addition, nearly half a million vulnerable road users were injured.

Thus, since 2012, the mortality rate of these groups accounted for almost 50% of deaths due to traffic accidents, 6.5 points more than in 2007, when it accounted for 43.5% of deaths.

The report, which analyzes 900.000 accidents between 2007 and 2016, of which have been studied to 500,000 accidents with pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists, has been presented this Monday in Madrid.
