November 4, 20150

accidents-in-kuwait-upto-dateA study released in 2009 predicted that traffic congestions and accidents would cost Kuwait 27.430 billion dinars  over ten years as the country tries to shrug off a terrible world record.

Despite its small population of around three million people, Kuwait has been hit by an alarming rate of accidents and injuries.

According to the 2009-19 Traffic National Strategy, around 200 Kuwaitis are killed and 6,000 are injured annually in traffic accident, giving the northern Arabian Gulf country the world’s top ranking in the number of deaths and injuries resulting from traffic accidents.

More than 25,000 Kuwaitis, mostly relatives of those involved in accidents, are affected every year, the strategy, prepared by an international expert, said. The money to be spent by Kuwait to deal with accidents will represent around 6 per cent of its GDP.
