Q COSTA RICA NEWS – New research by Global Positioning Specialists (GPS) in Australia has identified the most dangerous countries to be a driver.

Experts at GPS in identifying the most dangerous countries to be a driver, investigated road quality, the number of road deaths, and motor vehicle crime statistics in 60 of the most car-dependent countries around the world. Each country was assigned a score for each factor based on their national statistics; the countries that had high road death and crime rates and low scores for the quality of their roads made it to the top of the list.
