Road accidents are a serious problem in the contemporary world and also a major issue in many countries of the European Union. Statistical data are terrifying. According to the World Health Organization each year nearly 1.25 million people die in road accidents. The object of the article is to assess road safety in the EU in the years 2005-2014 against the backdrop of the current economic and demographic situation in particular member states. The article uses data published by the European Statistical Office – Eurostat (www.ec.europa.eu/eurostat) and OECD. The conducted analysis shows an increase in road safety in the EU. However, the defined goal of reducing the number of fatal accidents by half by 2020 is at risk. The decrease rate of road traffic fatalities has dropped in comparison with previous years
