South Africa has been ranked as the world’s most dangerous country to drive in while India came in at fourth place after Thailand and the US, according to a research study undertaken by international driver education company Zutobi. This is a study of 56 countries across the world.

According to this study, the safest roads in the world can be found in Norway, with Japan taking second place and Norway’s Scandinavian neighbour Sweden having the third safest roads.

Zutobi qouted, “We analysed each country on five factors, giving each one a normalised score out of ten for each factor, before taking an average final score across all five factors”

These factors included analytics on;

– Estimates on the number of road traffic deaths per 100,000 population.
– The percentage of car occupants who use a seat-belt when travelling in the front of a vehicle.
– The proportion of road traffic deaths which have been attributed to alcohol consumption over the national legal limit.

The estimates for this study were based on the World Health Organization’s Global Health Observatory data repository.

Justice Project South Africa Chairperson Howard Dembovsky, agreed that South Africans tended to be poor drivers but also said that Zutobi had used outdated figures in its study.

Dembovsky also queried why South Africa was the only African country in its list.

“So to accuse us of being the worst in the world is a little bit unfair. If you are going to talk about the worst countries in the world, then you need to adopt a balanced approach,” Dembovsky commented in an interview with the radio station Cape Talk.

“(South African drivers) do have a shocking road safety record. As much as I would not place much reliance on that so-called study, there is still plenty of evidence to show that South Africans are dangerous drivers and inconsiderate drivers and have very little regard for the safety of others on our roads,” he said.
