South Africa has been ranked as the world's most dangerous country to drive in while India came in at a fourth
place, according to a research study undertaken by international driver education company Zutobi.
Among the list of 56 countries in the study, Thailand came in the second position and the US took up the third spot.
The safest roads in the world can be found in Norway, with its Scandinavian neighbor Sweden having the third
safest roads while Japan took second place, according to the study.
We analyzed each country on five factors, giving each one a normalized score out of ten for each factor, before
taking an average final score across all five factors, Zutobi said.
These factors included estimates on the number of road traffic deaths per 100,000 population; the percentage of
car occupants who use a seat-belt when traveling in the front of a vehicle; and the proportion of road traffic deaths
that have been attributed to alcohol consumption over the national legal limit.
These estimates were based on the World Health Organization's Global Health Observatory data repository.
The maximum speed limit on motorway and blood alcohol content restrictions in the various countries were also
taken into account.
