Norouz Road Casualties Rise

The immediate deaths arising from accidents during Norouz, the Iranian New Year holiday season (March 21 to April 2) regrettably rose compared to the same period of last year.
Statistics released by the Roads Ministry show that during the period from March 16 to April 4, 470 people lost their lives, a 17% increase from last year’s immediate deaths.
The number of accidents resulting in loss of life experienced a 21.6% rise, reaching 366. The number of accidents resulting in injuries also rose to 4141, up 23.8%.
As expected in Norouz, road trips observed a 13% y/y hike during the holiday season. However, the number of trips should not be used as a justification for the excessively high number of casualties.
