"" TRAFFIC SAFETY AND ROAD CONDITIONS: While in a foreign country, U.S. citizens may encounter road conditions that differ significantly from those in the United States. The information below concerning Libya is provided for general reference only, and may not be totally accurate in a particular location or circumstance.
Paved roads in rural areas are satisfactory; however, many rural roads are unpaved (i.e. dirt roads). Also, major highways along the seacoast and leading south merge into single-lane highways once they are outside the cities. These roads are heavily trafficked and precarious to navigate, especially at night and during the winter rainy season. The presence of sand deposits, and domestic and wild animals that frequently cross these highways and rural roads, makes them even more hazardous.
Availability of roadside assistance is extremely limited and offered only in Arabic. In urban areas and near the outskirts of major cities there is a greater possibility of assistance by police and emergency ambulance services, although they are usually ill equipped to deal with serious injuries or accidents.
Driving in Libya may be hazardous, and there is a high accident rate. Police enforcement of traffic signs and laws is rare. As a result, it is often difficult to anticipate the actions of other drivers on Libyan streets and highways. Wind-blown sand can reduce visibility without warning. Road conditions are poor, and public transportation, which is limited to occasional bus service, is poor. Taxis are available, but many taxi drivers are reckless and untrained, and English-speaking drivers are extremely rare. The sidewalks in urban areas are often in bad condition and cluttered, but pedestrians are able to use them.

I dont think it is a secret how many people loose their lives in road accidents in libya and i think it is a tragedy that we are loosing this many young people (mostly males) but i agree with showing off numbers and try to emphasize on the death tole as I hope it would be a deterrent for other drivers

Regarding the article, i believe it to be 100% true, yes it is sad but true and for me as person who drives in libya, I would have wrote much much more

The Question is why all this? its to do with mentality and nothing else and the same reckless drivers in libya are the most law abiding drivers abroad ... so why?

Fe Aman Allah

unfortunately I read about accidents in Libya every week in a Libyan website, the anumber of dead and injured is very high compared to the population of Libya, there are big problems there with mentality and with facilities and it seems to be getting worse, Allah bless.

Thanks for pointing this issue out. Road traffic accidents are the biggest killers in Libya at the moment and the situation is getting worse. We need to raise awareness of this.
I hope you continue to post more on this issue.

Accidents occur in all countries, and we have not yet seen the numbers in other countries, even we compare it with Libya, in any case, the report has good points and officials should be taken into account, knowing that there is exaggerating things in terms of crime, for the other parts in website, I wish you Conciliation, and thank you for your interest in public issues.
