WHO’s top ten best and worst drivers by country

Thanks for posting that much more accurate list than WHO’s list, arencee.
I had calculated it in deaths per 100,000 cars and gotten exactly the figures you quoted, confirming the accuracy of your calculations.
You might also add Kenya to the list who, with 11,037 deaths amongst only 546,000 cars, most likely ranks as the world’s most dangerous place, at least on their roads where there are 2,021 deaths per 100,000 cars.  In your notation, that works out to 1/50.
Why on Earth would WHO rank the West Bank/Gaza as one of the safest places to drive when a car there is 35 times as dangerous as one in Switzerland, almost three times as dangerous as one in Iraq, and equally as dangerous as one in Afghanistan?
