Traffic Safety Basic Facts are delivered in twelve fact sheets. The fact sheets are based on data from the CARE Database (see section Accident Databases under Data). Each of these fact sheets provides data for 14 EU countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and United Kingdom.
The fact sheets cover accident data over the period 1997-2006.
The reader of a Basic Fact Sheet is guided with text which explains tables and figures. The most important, worth-noticing conclusions and comments concerning the road safety topic treated are highlighted in boxes beside the text.
