Jordan – Insurers to improve road safety
Thursday, 01 04 2018, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Jordan
Almost every day or even every few hours, we hear about a traffic accident in the Kingdom of Jordan that causes deaths or injuries despite the strategies and plans implemented by the traffic authority every year. Therefore, all these measures did not help decrease motor accidents for years as studies show that more than 600 persons died annually due to accidents in Jordan in the past years.
This year accidents, deaths, and injuries might increase but there are not statistics except that for the first quarter that indicates more than 100 deaths due to traffic accidents.
In light of the economic conditions prevailing in the Kingdom, the private sector especially the insurance sector should play effectively a role in improving road safety.
