Tehran, Jan. 03 – Angry residents in Tehran’s 17th district blockaded the main freeway on Saturday protesting against the unsafe conditions which regularly result in fatal accidents.

Protesters stopped all traffic flowing on the Javaneh freeway between the 17th and 19th districts in the Iranian capital.

Many local residents apparently joined the demonstrators following a car accident involving a mother and her young child. Their fate remains unknown.

The protesters blamed the authorities for failing to repair unsafe roads and said that overpasses should be built crossing the freeway for pedestrians wishing to cross. They also said that neither the 17th district nor 19th district councils had taken any preventative or investigative measures to reduce risks of traffic accidents following the latest incident.

Iran has one of the most dangerous roads in the world, with some 25,000 being killed in traffic accidents every year.
