Spain’s National Statistics Institute (INE) has revealed that 3,910 people committed suicide in 2014 while just 1,873 died in road accidents.

The number of suicides surpassed the number of road accidents recently, in 2008, very possibly because road safety has considerably improved.

Whereas in 1989, 8,219 died on the roads, the figure now stands at under 2,000 per year.
