South Korea is near the bottom in terms of traffic safety among developed countries, with its traffic fatality rate being the second-highest among surveyed countries despite improvements over the past decade, data showed on Monday.

The number of South Koreans killed on the road reached 105 per 1 million people in 2011, ranking 30th among 31 countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

South Korea’s fatality rate, although an improvement from 119 in 2009 and 218 in 2000, is much higher than the OECD average of 63.

Poland topped the list with 109, and the United States and Greece had the third- and fourth-highest rates with 104 and 97, respectively, while Britain recorded a rate only 31 deaths, the data showed.
