These Are the World’s Most Dangerous Roads

Road users in low- and middle-income countries are more than twice as likely to die in a traffic accident than their counterparts in developed nations, according to World Health Organization data for 2013. Thailand has the world’s worst drivers, with a road-traffic death rate of 36.2 per 100,000 population. The average for developed nations is 9.3, compared with 24.1 for low-income and 18.4 for middle-income countries.
