There is no shortage of statistics that show that Honduras is a dangerous place. Assassinations of environmental leaders, the most dangerous place for environmentalists in the world. Murders left and right, with zero accountability or reliable law enforcement. But it's maybe the roads that are most likely to kill you. Nearly all of the cars are salvaged vehicles from the States or elsewhere, and working seatbelts are hard to find. The only dead body I saw during my year in Honduras was from an accident. Motorcycle with no helmet.
