Are German roads safe? One number says it all. According to the Federal Statistical Office, more than 2,700 people died in road transport last year. It was 300 less than in 2019. However, the number only dropped significantly because traffic also dropped sharply in the year of the Corona outbreak. The federal government is still miles away from its big goal of bringing the number of victims as close as possible to zero with its “Vision Zero”.
