Home/Study Says Thailand’s Roads 2nd-Deadliest in the World

Thailand’s roads remain among the most dangerous in the world, according to a World Health Organization report, which found that the Southeast Asian nation is second only to war-torn Libya in per capita road fatalities.

The UN health agency’s Global Status Report on Road Safety 2015 study found that 14,059 people died on Thailand’s roads in 2012 a rate of 36 people per 100,000 and an average of almost 39 fatalities per day. This places Thailand in the company of Iran (32.1 per 100,000), Togo (31.1) and nine African nations that fell between 30 and 35 deaths per 100,000 people.
