Culture: Reflections on Individualism and Community. Law and society on the roads of Islamic republic
Örebro University, School of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences.
2015 (English)In: Driving culture in Iran: law and society on the roads of the islamic republic / [ed] Reza Banakar, London: I.B. Tauris , 2015, p. 149-177Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Iran has one of the highest rates of road traffic accidents worldwide and according to a recent UNICEF report, the current rate of road accidents in Iran is 20 times more than the world average. Using extensive interviews with a variety of Iranians from a range of backgrounds, this book explores their dangerous driving habits and the explanations for their disregard for traffic laws. It argues that Iranians’ driving behaviour is an indicator of how they have historically related to each other and to their society at large, and how they have maintained a form of social order through law, culture and religion.
