This study analyzed the distribution of 13,694 fatal road traffic injuries (RTIs) that occurred in 2012 in Jiangsu Province, China. Demographic characteristics and vulnerable versus non-vulnerable road users were examined. It was found that RTIs and years of potential life lost (YPLL) rates were higher in Jiangsu than in China as a whole. The age-adjusted RTI mortality in 2012 in Jiangsu was 18.14 and YPLL was 494.3 per 100,000 population. Pedestrians, men, older age groups, and people traveling in less prosperous regions were more likely to be affected. Pedestrians made up more than 80% of all fatal RTIs. The mortality rate of pedestrians in Jiangsu was 9.18 per 100,000 population in 2012 as compared with the global pedestrian mortality rate of 3.9 in 2010.
