ABSTRACT
Each year, a large number of people have accidents on European roads. The consequences for twenty five member states have different dimensions. The direct and indirect costs are 200.000 million euros or almost 2% of GDP. 43.000 people die each year, and thousands more are injured.

Our country has a privileged place in this tragic statistic, but other countries such as the UK have shown that unsafe roads can be controlled through a systematic policies. What is the reason why some countries have high levels of accidents and other high levels of road safety? Spain suffers a 200.000 accidents a year that cause deaths and injuries. Spain must build a new road culture through Social Traffic Control and a State Pact.
