International Road Federation (IRF) statistics made freely accessible thanks to the TotalEnergies Foundation program

For more than 60 years, the annual global statistics of the IRF have provided an overview of how behaviors and habits on the road have evolved: the number of accidents, networks, traffic, the number of vehicles, and so on. These figures are a reference tool to improve understanding, and ultimately take action for safer roads. Thanks to the support of TotalEnergies Foundation, this database is now freely accessible to all players in the sector.

The IRF statistics include 200 indicators for more than 200 countries and territories. Data can be accessed via the RF WRS Data Warehouse ( platform, where it can be integrated, compared and matched. The rigorous compilation of reliable data makes it easier to draft policies and implement measures to reduce the number of road accidents.

Until now, users were required to have a license to access these statistics on line.  Because road accidents are the primary cause of death among young people and safety is one of the Company's core values, TotalEnergies Foundation decided to fund free access to these data.
