This article will bring you to the list of countries with worst roads in the world. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it. Traveling on bad roads is not only uncomfortable and annoying, but these roads do harm for our cars as well. If you are planning to travel around the world and hire a car, check out Insider Monkey’s article now.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three countries with worst roads in the world from their list.
The first one is Niger. Over in western Africa, we find Niger, a country that’s home to some 20.6 million people. Unfortunately, the country makes our list due to the fact that there are 22.6 traffic deaths for every 100,000 people. This is due, in part, to the fact that the country’s major cities have poorly organized road signs and broken traffic lights. Furthermore the country doesn’t have a very expansive road system, and only 21% of the roads they do have are paved and classified as primary roads. Secondary roads consisting of lateral and gravel roads make up 13.5%, while tertiary roads, which are generally dirt roads, make up 7.5%. The rest of 58% are rural tracks and trails. The next country is Ethiopia, a country that sees about 25.3 deaths for every 100,000 population due to traffic issues. The country, which is located in the Horn of Africa, has over 102 million citizens, but those of them who do drive, are considered as lacking in discipline, which pushes traveling sites to warn foreigner drivers to offer other cars enough space to avoid a collision. At last, but not least we are mentioning Mozambique. On the shore of the Indian Ocean lies Mozambique, home to nearly 29 million people. Unfortunately, the country has one of the highest road traffic death rates in the world, with 31.6 deaths for every 100,000 people. The country doesn’t have a lot of great roads. In fact, traveling sites mention that the state of the roads in Mozambique isn’t too great, and that you’ll have quite a few issues if you’re planning on traveling with a low clearance vehicle. The country has a lot of dirt roads which become close to inaccessible during wet seasons and are often flooded.
