“Last year, 17,000 people were killed and nearly 360,000 were injured,” says Iran’s Traffic Police Chief
The mullahs’ regime in Iran has turned killing people into a hobby. From the coronavirus death rate, which has surpassed that of any other country in the world after two years, to the number of executions and arbitrary killings, which has increased daily since Ebrahim Raisi became the regime’s president last August, and finally, the death rate due to road accidents. According to the Iranian regime’s economic experts, damages caused by road accidents in the country are wasting about 8 percent of the country’s GDP. As per them, the regime’s government is allocating nine to eleven percent of its financial resources to deal with the consequences of road accidents.
“We have 236,000 kilometers of roads in the country, 54 million licensed drivers, and 38 million vehicles, 35 percent of which are worn out, “at a conference in Isfahan on March 27. Eighty percent of the general fleet is depleted from this total. There are also 12 million motorcycles in the country, with 10,500,000 of them being used and worn out. As a result, we do not have a good situation in the country’s vehicle industry. The country spends 5.3 billion tomans for every person who dies in an accident.”
“In each accident, we have 20 to 25 injured and disabled people per person killed,” he continued, referring to the moral damage caused by accidents. Last year, 17,000 people were killed and nearly 360,000 were injured, with 15 to 25% of those disabled by spinal cord injuries and unable to move for the rest of their lives, and no compensation mechanism in place for moral damage.”
Every hour, two people are killed in car accidents. Iran’s roads have around 5,300 accident-causing points across the country. These areas account for about 38.5 percent of all accidents reported on Iranian roads, denoting that the regime is unconcerned about the safety of its citizens, especially since this number has risen in recent years.
“We don’t have a national car at all,” Hadianfar said during the conference, expressing his confusion and desperation about the country’s car industry, which is the second leading cause of all accidents. If we had a national car, the cost of the car should not fluctuate with the value of the dollar. The majority of the parts are from China, and the majority of them are of poor quality. In the automobile industry, we have a lot of issues.”
“I told the Ministry of Industry, Mine, and Trade that there is no need to produce 3 million cars a year because firstly, the country cannot bear this amount, secondly, produce 800,000 cars, but produce safe cars,” he added, referring to the regime’s car industry, which is also engaged in massive acts of corruption. Car accidents account for much more than 12% of all deaths.”
