Single vehicle deaths in Greece are EU’s highest

Greece has the highest rate of deaths in the European Union due to single-vehicle collisions (SVC), or a road accident in which only one vehicle is involved. According to the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC), SVCs are responsible for one third of road fatalities in the EU in the 2013-2015 period. In Greece, however, they were the cause of 42 percent of road deaths, ahead of Luxembourg and Cyprus with 41 percent, Belgium with 38 percent, Norway with 37 percent and France with 36 percent.
