The concern for road safety in Europe is growing bigger. European Union by its means promote the aim of reducing the number of victims of traffic accidents by half in the period 2011-2020. In order to achieve this objective a lot of actions should be developed. One of our concern is the development of the infrastructure, mainly building motorways. Our research aims to study the relation between infrastructure – motorway versus highway and road accidents. Our findings show that is a great relationship between uses of motorways and reducing the number of accidents.
