Road Death Toll Rises in Iran

A report released by the Iranian Legal Medicine Organization shows the number of deaths caused by car accidents witnessed a 0.4% year-on-year rise in the 10 months ending Jan. 20.
During the period, 13,874 people lost their lives, 10,889 (78.4%) of whom were men and the remaining 2,985 (21.6%) were women. 
The report categorizes deaths by province, according to which the western Ilam Province has suffered the least number of road fatalities (123) and the southern Fars Province suffered the most casualties (1,271).
The figures are a warning sign as Norouz (Iranian New Year) approaches. During the 13-day holidays, many go on trips by car and death statistics soar.
