Pakistan’s fatal traffic accident record is one of the worst in the world. Fast and reckless driving, poor road infrastructure and lack of safety precautions can lead to a large number of accidents.
The high accident rate is usually attributed to many U-turns and dangerous turns on major roads. Experts believe that 35% of road accidents are caused by road design errors.
