Jordan began its modern development in the seventies. The development of the transportation sector, particularly road infrastructure, has shown substantial growth.

In 1970 there were about 22,000 vehicles using the roads of Jordan and the fleet has grown since than at a rate over 10% a year, reaching 389,196 in 1998. This growth was more than 3 times the population growth rate. This paper discusses road safety in Jordan.
