In 2013, 1,193 people died as a result of road traffic accidents in Australia. A further 18 people had a road traffic accident contribute to, but not directly cause, their death. Half (51%) of all people who died in road traffic accidents were occupants of a car (including mini buses and utility vehicles), as opposed to other forms of road transport.
The majority of people who died due to a road transport accident in 2013 were male (72.4%). In 2013, younger people, particularly younger men, were more likely to die due to a road transport accident than older people.
The total number of deaths due to road transport accidents has decreased over time and now accounts for a relatively small proportion of deaths in Australia each year, approximately 0.9% of deaths in 2013. However, the personal and social consequences of passenger vehicle, motor vehicle accidents and fatalities on individuals, families and communities can have wide and lasting effects. Injuries from accidents can be substantial, with rehabilitation continuing over a long time.
