Road accidents decreased noticeably in fiscal 2021-22 compared to the previous year, the minster of industries said.
“There is some progress regarding road casualties, but we are far from the ideal. Road-related deaths have declined from fiscal 2013-14. Based on numbers released by the Statistical Center of Iran it reached 4.4 per 100 accidents in the calendar year 2020-21. 
This decreased further and reached 1 per 100 accidents a year later in March 2021-22,” Reza Fatemi Amin was quoted as saying by Khabar Khodro (auto news) website.
“Since the number of vehicles on our roads shot up by 70% during the period, it could be said that the downward pattern is reasonable though still not acceptable,” Fatemi Amin said.
