According to a study on road safety, of the 3,500 people who die in traffic accidents every day, 85 per cent come from poor countries.

A report by the FIA Foundation, a UK motoring charity, said the figure will rise to more than 5,700 a day in 10 years time, unless governments take stronger action.

In Bangladesh, which already has a high road death toll, experts are predicting such accidents could become the biggest killer there in the future.
