Deadly road accidents take place on a daily basis in Egypt due to poor road safety, badly maintained infrastructure, and loosely enforced traffic regulations.

However, Egypt has allocated millions of pounds on developing and expanding road networks in recent years.

In 2017, the government also passed a new, comprehensive traffic law to crackdown on violators and enhance safety and security.
The law will go into effect in 2020.
