The 20 Most Dangerous Places to Drive in the World
Nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes each year around the world, on average 3,287 deaths a day, according to the Association for Safe International Road Travel (ASIRT). In the U.S. that number is 37,000. Up to 50 million are injured or disabled globally; most of the victims are between 15 and 44 years of age. The following list, in no particular order, is based on several studies and analyses – the latest data by the World Health Organization and research by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, which did its own study. Both calculate the rate of traffic fatalities per 100,000 inhabitants. Road conditions, traffic rules, law enforcement, pedestrians’ behavior, and social stability have all been taken into consideration.
