10-countries-with-the-worst-drivers-in-the-world

Traffic in a foreign country can make any driver feel dizzy. Especially if your country has left-hand traffic and you arrived in Japan or England, where there is right-hand traffic. This will baffle any driver. Also, for example, non-Europeans can be uncomfortable in the narrow streets of old Europe, with endless one-way or roundabout streets and strange intersections.


In which countries are drivers more likely to violate traffic rules?


For Europeans, for example, in America, it may seem difficult in large cities to have numerous highways with the intersection of other extensive significant routes with a vast number of lanes, as well as with multiple adjoining streets. Indeed, from such a variety of roads, any traveler can feel dizzy.


10 countries with the worst drivers in the world


If you come to another country, there will be more dangers on the road than in your state. For example, in many countries, pedestrians have a lot of privileges, and therefore, all cars must pass them. In many countries, you must yield to a pedestrian even if there are no proper signs or zebra markings on the road. In some cities worldwide, livestock can enter the road anytime, which you must also let pass, even if there is no sign.


So if you are going on a world tour by car, be extremely careful. In the host country, despite the general rules of the road in the world, there may be some differences in the interpretation of traffic rules.


10 countries with the worst drivers in the world


Also, note that only some country's authorities pay special attention to road signs. For example, in Lebanon, road signs are not very noticeable on the road, as both the style and design are more like informational messages. As a result, a non-local driver can easily miss them.


Also, be careful at roundabouts where the right of way may vary from country to country. In one country, a rule may obligate drivers approaching a roundabout to give way to those moving in a circle. In other countries, this rule may be reversed.


When planning your vacation abroad, where you will travel by car, you should know the countries where you must be extremely careful on the roads.


 10 countries with the worst drivers in the world


The World Health Organization (WHO) collects statistics on all things concerning the welfare of nations, including maintaining global statistics on accidents and deaths on the roads, for each country, in the end, which calculates the number of people killed in traffic accidents per 100,000 population yearly. For example, in recent years in the UK, an average of 4 people die per 100,000 people per year. In the US, the rate is higher at 11 per 100,000.


But there are countries where this coefficient is enormous. Here are the TOP 10 countries with the most dangerous and worst drivers; they often do not comply with traffic rules and cause frequent severe accidents. Do not be afraid; Russia is not in it, even though our accident rate remains very high by world standards. According to the WHO, 18.9 people per 100,000 people die yearly in Russia. This is comparable to China, Tajikistan, and Armenia.


10) Chad (Africa): 29.7

10 countries with the worst drivers in the world

Chad is a relatively small African country with just over 11,000,000 people. This country's population speaks French, Arabic, and many other languages. Also, here lives the most significant number of people with different religions. That is why, especially on the road. The road network of the African country is small. Chad has 40,000 km of roads, a little by world standards.


But despite this, Chad has the highest death rate on the roads. Most likely, because of this, a little more than 50 percent of people under 14 in this country. One-fifth of the population is people aged 24 to 54 years. Such statistics indicate that people in this country do not live in old age. And road accidents are a common cause of death. This is an impoverished country that leaves much to be desired. Including the quality is expensive in the country is disgusting, and virtually no one is engaged in traffic control.


9) Oman: 30.4

10 countries with the worst drivers in the world

This coastal country on the Arabian Sea lies directly below Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. A sultan rules the land. The size of the country is slightly smaller than the area of Moscow, the Moscow region, and the Tver region. In the north of the country is a mountainous area, and closer to the south is a desert area.


Most of the roads are unpaved. The high number of severe crashes may be due to sand and dust storms. Or because the country has a disproportionately high ratio of men to women in all age groups.


Almost 43% of the population is between 25 and 54. The ratio of men to women is 1.4. As a result, for some reason, Oman has a vast death rate on the country's roads.


Maybe because the female gender does not meet on the road, and the male population is aggressive towards each other?


8) Guinea-Bissau: 31.2

10 countries with the worst drivers in the world

This country borders Senegal and Guinea. This West African country is located in the west of the Atlantic Ocean. The population of Guinea-Bissau is 1,700,000 people. But, despite the small population of the African state, this country has a high road accident rate.


The usual picture on the road - a showdown of angry drivers yelling at each other in Portuguese. Aggressive driving without rules is not uncommon here. 1% of the population is European. Ninety-nine percent of the population is African. Seven percent of the population is aged 55 or over.


On the roads, most drivers are young.


After all, according to world statistics, young people are more likely to get into road accidents. Especially when you consider in Gwenei-Bissau, 19 percent of the population are men and women who are only 19 years old.


7) Iraq: 31.5

10 countries with the worst drivers in the world

Like many other countries on our list, Iraq has a small population of people over 55 - just 6.4 percent. Of course, it has yet to be officially proven that the country's younger population contributes to many accidents. But in all countries, there is a clear connection between the age demographics of the population and road accidents. The correlation is visible to the naked eye.


The fewer older people in a country, the higher the number of people killed in traffic accidents per 100,000 population.


In Iraq, this ratio is 31.5 people per 100 thousand people. For example, in Canada, this ratio is only four people per 100 thousand people. In Canada, one-third of the population is people over the age of 55 years.


Jamaica has 11 fatalities per 100,000 population. This country also has a high percentage of older people (15 percent over 55). This does not directly prove anything, but in any case, it is clear that the younger the state's population, the more accidents occur on the road.


. There is a theory that young people tend to be more impulsive and reckless, which is the main recipe for aggressive or inattentive driving that leads to accidents.


6) Nigeria: 33.7

10 countries with the worst drivers in the world

It is the most populous African country in the world. There are 250 nationalities in Nigeria. 6.1 percent of the population is over the age of 55. Nigeria has a small elderly population because the average life expectancy in this state is 52 years. The average national age of the country's entire population is 18.2 years.


There is serious accident rates e on the country roads and a high death rate from AIDS. Especially in infancy, which is also associated with AIDS. In addition, people often die from violent acts due to poor medical care for the population. As a result,y.


But Nigerian roads are only one place for people to be careful. It is also dangerous off the coast, where sea pirates are active.


5) Iran: 34.1

10 countries with the worst drivers in the world

Iran has geographical similarities with neighboring Iraq. In Iran, the average age of the population is 28 years. Only 10 percent of people in the country are over 55. By the way, this shows that the correlation between age and deaths due to road traffic accidents is not the only factor in the high accident rate in the country due to the young population.


However, Iran ranks 5th in the world regarding the number of deaths in road accidents. But experts need to name the exact reason why. It cannot be unequivocally said that this is due to the culture of the population, their education, or poor traffic regulation. Most likely, there is more than one reason.


4) Venezuela: 37.2

10 countries with the worst drivers in the world

The reason for the high death rate on the roads of Venezuela is most likely the country's old fleet. The fact is that in warm and mild climates, cars tend to have a longer service life. This can be seen even in our country. For example, everyone knows that vehicles in the South of Russia may not be damaged by body corrosion for many decades, while, as in Moscow, many cars completely rot in 10-15 years. In the warm climate of Venezuela, many old cars have been preserved, the safety of many of which leaves much to be desired.


But old cars need new parts not available for purchase in this country. As a result, the population is forced to restore old, damaged car parts. As a result, technical malfunction of vehicles becomes a frequent cause of accidents. As a result, Venezuela is one of the most dangerous countries in the world. But the point here is not only the high road accident rate but also the high crime rate in the country. So Venezuela is the riskiest place on earth to travel.


3) Thailand: 38.1

10 countries with the worst drivers in the world

This country is known for its tropical climate and several mountainous areas with wildlife. , with many deaths.


A typical example was the truck and school bus accident in 2014. Fifteen people died, and 30 were injured in the accident. The cause of the accident was an old bus whose brakes failed. And such old vehicles in the country all the time. In addition, the country's road safety standards are low. Also, people in Thailand need to follow traffic rules better.


2) Dominican Republic: 41.7

10 countries with the worst drivers in the world

According to statistics for the Dominican Republic, the road rules in this country are also practically not observed by anyone. Red traffic light for the population of the Dominican Republic is almost nonexistent. Also, drivers in this country need to follow the row and order of priority transport.


So when you turn somewhere, be prepared to be cut off from another lane halfway through, or they will overtake you in the oncoming lane at the turn. It is associated with a side impact. The reason is that no one observes traffic rules at intersections. That is why this country ranks second in the world regarding the number of deaths on the roads.


1) Niue: 68.3

10 countries with the worst drivers in the world

This island nation is located in the South Pacific Ocean, 2400 km from New Zealand. Niue lies within the triangle the Cook Islands, Tonga, and Samoa formed.


The population of Niue is only 1200 people. With such a population, the Polynesian country cannot afford to lose people in traffic accidents. Moreover, there is a negative population growth in this Christian nation. For example, from 2010 to 2014, the country's population decreased by 200 people. The leading cause of the accident with severe consequences. And this considers that this small country has only 64 kilometers of roads along the coastline.


But this was enough for the population to miss 200 people in 4 years. Surprisingly, in addition to a small number of roads, there is virtually no transport in the country, which, all the more, consists of a few old buses, motorcycles, and bicycles. As a result, this country ranks first in the world regarding the number of deaths in the state's entire population. The population may have something to think about. After all, it won't be long before the country dies in an accident.

rules-for-using-child-car-seats-and-other-useful-tips

Buying a functional car seat is not everything, as you need to know how to use it correctly. Studies by the German Institute for Insurance Appraisers (UDV) (data collected from Germany) show that more than 50% of children traveling in car seats are not adequately protected. Therefore, it is important to know what parents are doing wrong.

 

How to choose the right child car seat

 

The fundamental need to fix a child in a car in a special child restraint, and not in the hands of a parent, is primarily due to the fact that during sudden braking (on impact) at a speed of 50 km/h, the weight of the passenger increases and increases more than 30 times. It is for this reason that carrying a child in your arms is considered the most dangerous cause of safety. For example, if the weight of a child is 10 kg, then at the moment of a direct impact, he will already weigh more than 300 kg and it is almost impossible to hold him in order to protect him from a sharp blow to the front seat.

 

What kind of child seat should I buy in the car?

 

Why do you need a car seat? According to the World Health Organization, the use of child restraints in vehicles can reduce infant mortality by 71% and older children by 54%. The use of such safety devices is mandatory for children under 12 years of age in countries with a high level of motorization.

 

The fundamental need to fix a child in a car in a special child restraint, and not in the hands of a parent, is primarily due to the fact that during sudden braking (on impact) at a speed of 50 km/h, the weight of the passenger increases and increases more than 30 times. It is for this reason that carrying a child in your arms is considered the most dangerous cause of safety. For example, if the weight of a child is 10 kg, then at the moment of a direct impact, he will already weigh more than 300 kg and it is almost impossible to hold him in order to protect him from a sharp blow to the front seat.

 

What is a car seat?

 

A child car seat is a restraint designed to carry children in a car. The car seat is designed for small passengers, from their very birth until the child reaches a height of 150 cm or a weight of 36 kg.

 

The main task of the car seat is to ensure the safety of the child during a traffic accident, as well as during emergency braking or sudden maneuvers of the car. Its need for a car is obvious, such a car seat reduces the likelihood of fatal injury. A prerequisite for this is the correct installation of such a car seat in the car.

 

How to properly transport a child in a car seat?

Pay your attention to the instructions for installing the car seat in the car. Ask the consultant to show you personally how to secure the seat in the car and how to properly fasten the child in it. After placing the child in the car seat, fasten it with the inner belts or three-point seat belts, depending on the group of the car seat. Be sure to check the tension of the belts, they should not sag or hang out. When traveling by car, give your child only soft toys for play and fun. For babies, use only special toys provided specifically for car seats. If your child watches cartoons during the trip, then keep in mind that all hard objects must be carefully secured. Do not give your child a DVD player or a book.

 

A child with a height of at least 135 cm is allowed to ride without a car seat. But he must sit in the back seat, fastened with a seat belt. However, it does not fit into available car seats. It is also important to develop appropriate habits in young passengers so that they understand how important safety is. Older children must be fastened to the car seat with a seat belt. Parents are obliged to check whether the child really did it right.

 

 Vehicles that are not suitable for attaching child seats may not carry small children on public roads.

 

At the same time, many say that before, when there were no special child seats, it was easy to do without them. But to understand the seriousness of the issue, one should compare modern accident statistics with data from 30 years ago. Dry statistics show that, despite the lower traffic activity, there were more injuries caused by accidents than today. Therefore, reliable protection of the child in the car is a fundamental issue that parents must decide.

 

How to choose the right child seat

 

The model must first of all correspond to the height and weight of the baby. If the seat is too small, the child's head will protrude beyond the contours of the backrest, which will not provide adequate support in a crash. If the car seat is larger, then the harness geometry will be incorrect. At the same time, the seat should not only be comfortable for the child, but also match the layout of the car.

 

Theoretically, the seats are universal, but in practice it often turns out that the seat base cannot be securely installed on the rear sofa. Often this is due to the strongly defined contours of the sofa. It happens that a large, deep and elongated seat is not suitable for safe use in a particular model, since the narrow door does not allow the parent to comfortably place the child and fix it correctly. For those with two or three children, the situation is complicated by the need to install multiple car seats.

 

Although ordering online is convenient and usually cheaper than in regular retail outlets, you should choose a car seat in real life - with a car and a child. It is worth comparing different models in terms of ease of use and ask the seller to test install a particular seat in the car.

 

How to properly install a car seat

 

Unfortunately, not all car seats are intuitively easy to install. Therefore, a common mistake is the incorrect installation of a car seat. Models that are secured with seat belts are cheaper, geared toward older children, and tend to cause the most problems. The correct positioning of the belts and their maximum tension is of decisive importance here.

 

If the child seat swings freely in the rear seat, it does not provide enough protection for the small passenger. Most seats have assembly instructions on the side or base showing the correct positioning of the straps.

But the owner of the car often faces problems. Sometimes the car has too short seat belts. In this case, a belt extension is used. It happens that the seat cannot be tilted due to the shape of the seats.

 

Even the fastening system, made in accordance with the Isofix standard, does not guarantee the absence of problems. In addition to the metal snap-on brackets located between the back of the chair and the car seat, a top strap or additional support is usually used for proper attachment. It is located between the base of the seat and the floor of the car.

 

The top strap is attached to the clips on the back of the sofa. Its function, like the retractable support, is to prevent the uncontrolled movement of the child seat in the event of a collision. The sofa of the car to which the child seat is attached is usually quite soft, and the Isofix latches can act as hinges, extending the seat by almost a quarter of a turn. As a result, the risk of hitting the back of the front seat increases.

 

 

Attention! Before installing the seat, you should carefully study the technical documentation of the car, find recommendations regarding the installation location of the child seat. In many vehicles, due to the design of the seats, the type of cushions or side curtains, secure locking is only possible in some places.

 

How to use seat belts correctly

Most children are simply not properly seated. It should be noted here that the inertia belts used by adults automatically adjust the tension, provided that they are in good working order and the passenger is sitting correctly. But the child seat belts are tightened by hand. This often requires effort, so to make the child comfortable, the force with which the belts are tightened should be dosed so as not to provoke injury.

 

In this case, the child in the car seat must be secured like a driver in a sports car. The back of the baby is firmly pressed against the back of the chair, and a hand should be difficult to crawl between the body of the child and the belts.

 

The belts must not be twisted, because in this state they will not evenly distribute the load. It is not allowed that the belt rubs against the child's neck, while providing support for the pelvis without a snug fit against the baby's stomach.

 

 

It should be remembered that:

 

1. In cars that do not provide for the possibility of installing a seat for a child, you cannot carry it on public roads.

 

2. Straps should fit snugly against the body and not create discomfort.

 

3. The airbag is deactivated when a child seat is installed on the passenger seat.

 

4. If the straps are too long, it is better to choose a different model of the child seat. At the same time, the safety of the child largely depends on the attention and driving style of the parent behind the wheel. Therefore, follow the Rules of the Road and carefully follow the road so as not to endanger the baby.
