Ukraine has highest death toll in road accidents in Europe

Despite the lowest number of cars per head of the population in Europe, Ukraine leads in the road death rate, Rada transport subcommittee head Ihor Didenko told in Lviv March 20.

 “Five thousand Ukrainians get killed in road accidents and 40,000 are injured,” the lawmaker said.

40% of road accidents involve pedestrians, followed by crossroads crashes and accidents involving children.

Many accidents are caused by the appalling condition of Ukrainian roads and poor lighting, he said.
