Road Deaths by Country 2024

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is considered one of the most dangerous countries in the world when it comes to accidents that occur as a result of vehicles and roadways. The combination of the disregard for the rules and the congestion of the country has contributed to almost 67 deaths per 100,000 people as a result of road deaths or motor vehicle collisions that have resulted in death. Some of the countries that are found on the list are also the poorest in the world, but the Dominican Republic is considered a better quality of life when compared to other states that have political instability.

The reason many countries that may have the financial means to improve their road safety conditions still rank highly on the list is due to the allocation of funds, the culture, and even the disregard for the rules. Of course, drunk driving and other impaired driving may not be as closely monitored without a proper police force in place and other checkpoints that go above and beyond the security of the general public in more obvious cases, such as crime and assaults.

Other countries, such as those in Eastern Europe and within Latin America, owe their road traffic incidents to their past. Communist, and even formerly communist, countries' infrastructure was built with the idea in mind that everyone would have equal access to different services but did not take into account expansion, technology, or other common "future-proofing" strategies. Now that motor vehicles are much more accessible, congestion in these countries is common due to a lack of roads and infrastructure.

Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is one of the poorest countries in the world and is home to one of the worst inflation scandals in the world. Zimbabwe has long been a country without means but was not exceptional in its poverty. In the last few decades, the governing body of Zimbabwe has been under major stress to pay back their debts to cover many political scandals that could have endangered them and their family. Furthermore, they did not want to further anger the population to avoid much civil unrest or even the outbreak of more violence.

Those in power in the Zimbabwe state had printed enough money to cover their debts and to get themselves out of a bad situation. Of course, the money was not tied to any other asset - as the gold standard has long been abolished in many countries after the example set by the United States of America in 1971. This rampant printing of money debased the currency, making it near worthless. Although many steps have been taken since to help their economy, one USD is still worth greater than 350 Zimbabwe dollars, which makes it a difficult nation to rebuild.

The lack of funding has been felt in the infrastructure, and much of the country still lacks proper roadways for the ever-increasing traffic that residents and those from within the continent traverse daily to conduct commerce.
