13 Countries with the Highest Road Accidents and Fatalities in the World

This article will bring you to the list of the countries with the highest road accidents and fatalities in the world. Insider Monkey has recently published an edifying article about it. Since the invention of motor vehicles, road accidents have been a serious concern. Thankfully, most road accidents do not result in fatalities, but nobody wants to be involved in such an unfortunate event. There was a fatal motorcycle crash accident in my family, so i have zero tolerance towards drunken driving… I firmly believe that most of the accidents happen because of human mistakes and ignorance of the traffic rules.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of countries with the highest road accidents and fatalities in the world  from their list.

The first ones are São Tomé and Príncipe. There is a tie in between São Tomé and Príncipe and our previous entrant when it comes to mortality rate per hundred thousand inhabitants by road accidents. However, there are more motor vehicles in São Tomé and Príncipe and that makes the country even more dangerous. If you find yourself there, please be very careful when driving. After all, it is much better to be safe than sorry. The second country on our list now is Iran. Iran is infamous for a lot of reasons, and ever since the “Islamic Revolution” there has been bad blood between the western world and Iran. However, here is yet another issue that is not that good about Iran. The fatality rate per hundred thousand inhabitants is really very high. Iran has been imposed with a lot of sanctions, and thus the country’s infrastructure has suffered severely. Combine that with the only ability of their automobile industry to produce sub-par vehicles, and you have a big problem. At last, but not least we are mentioning Rwanda. This East African country is as dangerous as Iran when it comes to driving from one place to another. On top of that, this country is also a landlocked country and that does make matters a bit more complicated. The country is not very developed and only a small percentage of people actually travel by motor vehicle, still, about four thousand people died in 2013 in Rwanda from road accidents alone.
