You take a risk every time you get behind the wheel of a car. This risk increases significantly if you choose to drive on the roads of South Korea, Hungary, Turkey, Poland, Slovakia, or Russia—these are six of the most dangerous countries in the world to drive in. Russia encounters 235 deaths per year for every million inhabitants and 939 deaths per year for every million vehicles. Why is driving especially dangerous in Russia? The combination of drunk driving, bad driving, bad road conditions, and insufficient policing begin to answer this question.
Mississippi seems to be our little Russia—the state has the most dangerous roads in the country. There are 27 driving-related deaths per 100,000 people. Many Mississippi drivers are guilty of speeding and texting. Driving in Pennsylvania is pretty dangerous too because of all the deer roaming around the state. The state contends with 100,000 deer collisions every year.
