EVOLUTION IN ACCIDENT AND FATALITY RATES ON MOTORWAYS OPERATED BY LICENSED COMPANIES BETWEEN 1968 AND 1977

EVOLUTION DES TAUX D'ACCIDENTS ET DE TUES SUR LES AUTOROUTES CONCEDEES ENTRE 1968 ET 1977

GRAPHS SHOW THE EVOLUTION IN FATALITY RATES AND ACCIDENT RATES SINCE 1974. FATALITY RATES VARY ONLY VERY SLIGHTLY FROM MOTORWAY TO MOTORWAY. THE RATES ARE 1,3 FOR FRENCH RELIEF MOTORWAYS AND 1,5 FOR THE MOTORWAY NETWORK IN GENERAL. ACCIDENT RATES HAVE DECREASED REGULARLY FROM 1968 TO 1975 OVER THE WHOLE OF THE MOTORWAY NETWORK OPERATED BY LICENSED COMPANIES. THE STABILIZATION OF ACCIDENT RATES SINCE 1974 IS RATHER SPECTACULAR IN SPITE OF AN INCREASE IN 1976 WHICH WAS NOT CONTINUED IN 1977.
