Michel Mutran, the Head of the Media Team in the Traffic Management Center (TMC), stated via a tweet that the rate of car accident victims per capita in Lebanon is the highest in the world.
In his tweet, Mutran stated that Lebanon averages 5 deaths related to car accidents per day. In a country with 6 million residents, this equates to losing 30 people out of every 100,000 to car accidents.
That number is significantly higher than the average global rate of 17.4 victims per 100,000 people. In low-income countries, the number increases to 24.1 while in high-income countries it decreases to 9.2 per 100,000 people.
