In 2021, there were 582 road deaths in the Netherlands. Although this number is again lower than in previous years, it is not the lowest number up till now, in spite of it being a ‘COVID-19 year' once more.

This fact sheet discusses the development of the number of serious road injuries in the Netherlands. Internationally, serious road injuries are defined as persons having sustained injuries in a road crash, whose injuries have a maximum severity of 3 on the medical injury scale AIS (MAIS3+).

This fact sheet considers road safety in the Netherlands from an international perspective. The number of serious road injuries is hard to compare to numbers in other countries, so we almost exclusively focus on the number of road deaths. For the Netherlands, we use the actual number of road deaths provided by Statistics Netherlands; i.e. the numbers adjusted for underregistration.

De maatschappelijke kosten van verkeersongevallen worden geschat op € 27 miljard in 2020 (met een bandbreedte van € 15 tot € 36 miljard). Dit is beduidend hoger dan andere maatschappelijke kosten door verkeer, zoals congestie (€ 3,5 tot € 4,6 miljard) en milieuschade (€ 7,3 miljard).
