In urban areas, two out of three people killed are vulnerable road users (pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists). This proportion is even more than three-quarters for some cities: Cannes-Pays de Lérins, Grand Paris, Grand Dijon, Toulon Provence Méditerranée, Sophia Antipolis, Nice Côte d’Azur and Saint Étienne Métropole.
33 % of people killed in urban areas are pedestrians. Their modal share (in terms of number of trips) varies from 15% for Bayonne to 39% for Paris. In Metz Métropole, Métropole du Grand Nancy and Grand Paris, pedestrians represent 45% of the people killed.
In urban areas, cycling mortality remains low (9 % of people killed). Their modal share (in terms of number of trips) ranges from 0.5 % for Marseille to 8 % for Strasbourg, where cyclists represent 21 % of those killed (Eurometropole de Strasbourg). For Rennes Metropole, the share of cyclists in mortality is 22 % for a modal share of 4 %.
Motorcycle users represent 28 % of people killed in urban areas, with a modal share (in terms of number of trips) of less than 4 %. In some metropolitan areas, one in two killed users is a motorized two-wheeler user: Cannes-Pays de Lérins, Nice Côte d'Azur and Sophia Antipolis.
