Dutch Road Safety Thrown Back in Time 15 Years

article imageRoad deaths in the Netherlands grew by a quarter last year, rising from 582 in 2021 to 737 in 2022, according to preliminary figures published by Statistics Netherlands in April 2023. In recent years, more cyclists were killed in the Netherlands than car occupants, which partly reflects relatively high levels of bike usage in the country.
