Number of people killed in Qatar traffic accidents hits new high

The number of people killed on Qatar’s roads has reached its highest level in at least 13 months, newly released statistics show.

There were 31 traffic fatalities recorded in January, according the Ministry of Development Planning and Statistics’ monthly bulletin.

That’s the highest number since the government began releasing traffic data in January 2014. At that time, there were 14 fatalities – less than half of what they were at the beginning of this year.

Even when taking Qatar’s growing population into account, January 2015 was still the deadliest month on the country’s roads, with 1.39 deaths per 100,000 residents.
