Canada is a geographically vast country with a population of nearly 33 million. Population density is low, only slightly higher than in Australia. Eighty-one per cent live in urban areas, with the large majority of inhabitants living within 100km of the US border. Travel is dominated by car use, although not to the extent of the USA.
Road safety is moderately good per population and per vehicle kilometre, and is improving. A high proportion of road accident fatalities are vehicle occupants, particularly those travelling by car.
