Panama’s road slaughter remains unchecked

Monday, June 12, 2017

Crime-related deaths are the ones that linger longer in the public perception, but slaughter  on Panama’s highways and city streets remains  one of the country’s biggest ongoing tragedies.

At the time of writing, in this week alone 11 people have died. The total death toll in less than six months reached  209  on “Black Friday”June 9, which puts Panama  on track to surpass last years horrific total  of 458.
