Accidents to children on the roads by 2018, the report of ASAPS – QN Engines


Accidents to children on the roads by 2018, we propose the’in-depth analysis of the ASAPS. The president, Giordano Biserni with the usual authority, illustrates a phenomenon of growth is worrying.

In 2018, according to data from the Observatory ASAPS on children from 0 to 13 years, deaths on the roads, things have gotten worse in 2017 and the numbers are distressing.


Were 49 the small victims, 9 more compared to 40 in 2017, an increase of 22.5 per cent. Take into account that only a collapse of the viaduct Morandi of Genoa were 3 children who died.


The saddest, most Observers of the ASAPS, the one that collects the data of the youngest victims of the road in the band ranging from 0 to 13 years, he has recorded 43fatal accidents that have resulted in the death of 49 children. The Observatory ASAPS also considered a little girl dead beyond the 30th day from the accident while in the Istat does not consider the deaths more than 30 days, and a child who died because overwhelmed by a tractor. Of the 49 small victims, 7 were foreign or of foreign origin or 14.3%. In 2017 were 10, equal to 25%.


Of the 49 children who died 31 were males and 18 females. The observatory in 2018 has also recorded 5 children dead “before being born” because of a road accident. 1 death intrauterine, and 4 in pregnant women, died in the accident.


Were 40 and the child victim recorded by the ASAPS in 2017, 53 in 2016 and 42 in 2015 and 65 in 2014. The Observatory il Centauro ASAPS has collected the data of only the deadly events through the news of the press agencies and those gathered by its own 600 contacts throughout the country and communicated to the see of Forlì. We also saw 77 accidents with children injured or deaths, which occurred near a school or during the journey home/school/home. In the other 9 incidents were directly involved in the School bus.


Of the 49 young victims 25, equal to 51%, were carried on board of the vehicles (the same number in 2017) and this aspect, however, proposes dramatically, the theme of the fixing of our little ones into a car seat. You do not know the figure of how many among these 25 victims were regularly connected, even if it may be assumed that a significant percentage were not transported to the norm. In particular, in the cases of expulsion from the passenger compartment of the vehicle after the crash. 1 child was transported on a motorcycle. 11 children were overwhelmed with their bike, given the decline compared to the 5 small cyclists killed in 2017 12 children were walking in the road and here we report another decline compared to the 8 small pedestrian deaths in 2017, which were 16 in 2016, 9 in 2015 and 25 in 2014.


But what are the roads most at risk for the small? The greatest number of children, 24, lost their lives on the state roads, provincial, and 12 in the urban roads and 10on motorways. 3 deaths have occurred in a funds or farm roads.


Among the youngest victims of the street with the most number of counts in the band that goes from 0 to 5 years with 22 deaths, 6 to 10 years of the young victims were 19, and 8 , instead, in the range from 11 to 13 years. In 1 fatal accident the driver of the vehicle involved is a result drunk. The highest number of young victims do score Lombardy and Lazio with 6 fatal accidents, followed by the Emilia Romagna with 5, and then to Piedmont with 4, and the Veneto with 3.


The ASAPS insists in remembering that every time a child loses its life on the road, the culprit is always an adult. We repeat, our dream is to put zeros in the boxes of our Observatory. For this the association will continue with insistence its information campaign to protect our children on the streets appealing to adults because them to the container with the child’s seat according to the rules and they abide by them with particular caution when they see them on the road. You can support our commitment to this dramatic slope. (ASAPS)

NOTE: In 49 of the deaths of 2018, the ASAPS also includes a death of a child happened for more than 30 days from the incident (Istat considers only deaths within 30 days of the accident) and an accident with a farm tractor.
