South Africa tops the list as the world’s most dangerous country to drive in.

This is according to Zutobi, an innovative online driver education platform.

The survey analysed countries across the world based on indicators including motorway speed limits, blood alcohol concentration limits for drivers and road traffic death rates, to determine the world’s safest and most dangerous countries to drive.

I still confuzzled by this 57.5% alcohol related road traffic deaths stat.

I would like to know how they get to this number.
Everytime you run someone over, just record whether you were drunk or not. Then working out the percent drunkenness is quite easy.
 
Even when a pedestrian gets knocked over and are found to have been drinking, the incident gets included in the stats.

That's why SA scores such high figures.

In all honesty I kind of know why our stats are so high, but I just find it to be downright lying and manipulating stats.
 
Not only to drive in, but also to live in. Irrelevant of stats anywhere and what people think or say.
 
All lies, these journalists will say anything to paint SA in a bad light. Anyone who believes the media these days is really dumb.
 
BUT, people don't get hurt. Cars get dings and scrapes but there's not enough speed differential to cause injuries.
That's potentially true I'll give you that. The infrastructure's so buggered, and the traffic laws so non-existent, that people possibly can't do excessive speeds or they would pretty much immediately die.

Pedestrians over there also seem to have an innate understanding that if they fsck around they're going to just get run over without mercy.

Unfortunately we'll likely never know because their data is so very very unreliable.

This is what people don't understand. In such countries, everyone knows that no one is going to stick to any rules so everyone is cautious just due to terror. LOL.

Here we expect drivers to obey the rules and majority do despite us moaning about it.
