Tehran, Iran, Oct. 18 – Road accidents in Iran are all too common. The real scale of the cataclysmic carnage is evident in a new report released by the country’s Medical-Law Organisation which analysed road deaths in Iran over the past five months of the Iranian calendar year.

From mid April until August of this year, 12,509 people have been killed on Iranian highways and roads, the report said.

The statistics showed that 10,209 of those killed were men and 2,500 were women.

The report has found that most of the fatalities were of youths.

Officials who prepared the report have estimated that the total number of road deaths in Iran at the end of the current year would be above 28,000.

The head of Iran’s traffic police Brigadier General Mohammad Rouyanian announced in June that the expected death toll from accidents on Iran’s highways for the current year stood at 31,000.

Iran’s highways are considered to be among the most dangerous in the world, with some 100,000 road-accident deaths occurring in the last five years, the equivalent of three deaths an hour.
