On average, a driver will get into an accident at least once in a ten year cycle, so says the researchers. There are different reasons why people get into accident the most common one being driving under the influence of alcohol or drug. Other reasons include driving when very tired that results in sleeping on the wheels as well as talking on the phone while driving. It is not surprising to find accidents on the road while in the city, especially where everyone is on the wheels.

However, some countries have managed to go down in history as countries with the most dangerous drivers leading to high rates of accidents. A recent study by the Michigan Transportation Research Institutes placed the following countries on the top of the list of countries where you are most likely to have an accident.

Namibia

The fact that Namibia has very good road networks but manages to top the list of countries with the most accidents only goes to put the blame on reckless driving. The National Road authority declared that there has been an increase of about 5.5% in road accidents. Most of these accidents are head on collisions supporting the claim that reckless driving is the main cause of accidents. The government of the country spends millions of dollar each year in road maintenance to ensure that the road networks remain the best that side of Africa. However they call on drivers to be more conscious when driving to ensure their vehicles are road worthy.

Thailand

Thailand

Thailand is heavily populated and its traffic jams can be terrible. However, the road networks are not that good as they are not properly maintained. For most drivers, Thailand roads are a death trap. At least 43 persons out of every 100,000 die from road accidents. The most deadly periods when accidents are most likely are during the Thai New year festivities and the Gregorian New Year

Iran

Iran

Iran is one deadly place to cross the road as pedestrian and even worst to be a driver. The rate of accidents is high and mostly due to reckless driving. Foreigners are advised by the transport agency to avoid driving on these roads if they can. In this country, drivers can overtake on any side of the road even along pavements. In fact, anywhere on the road where they can find space, they will struggle to squeeze their cars through.

Swaziland

Swaziland

Drivers in Swaziland love speed and this almost always land them in accidents. Cars and pedestrians are not the only road occupants., animals are definitely not left out. Apart from poor roads, non respect of traffic rules is a major problem. In this country, beating the traffic light is a normal habit for drivers who always seem to be in a hurry.

Sudan

Sudan

In Sudan, there are at least 36 deaths per 100, 000 people resulting from car accidents. The road network in the country is not only bad, the drivers are even worst. The roads can be dusty and are very dark at night due to no street lights.
