Dominican traffic death rate among world's highest

In this July 15, 2013 photo, a family of four travel on a motorcycle on the road between Dajabon and Montecristi, Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic is effectively the deadliest nation anywhere for drivers, second only to the tiny South Pacific island of Niue, where each death among its roughly 1,400 inhabitants spikes the fatality average. For every 100,000 inhabitants in the Dominican Republic, 42 die every year from traffic accidents, according to the World Health Organization. (AP Photo/Ezequiel Abiu Lopez)
