In the field of road safety, policy makers and researchers can make use of several accident databases to study the road safety problem and to make international comparisons. This part of the website provides basic information about 10 European databases, 3 Global databases, and 11 National databases (coming from 5 countries - Finland, France, Germany, Italy and The Netherlands). For each database, information is given about how the data are collected, which institutes are responsible for collecting and maintaining the database, and the availability of data.
