Abstract: 

Background: The aim of this study was to investigate the trends in mortality from road traffic accidents (RTA) in Fars Province, southern Iran.
Methods: The Age and sex-standardized mortality rate attributed to RTA from 2004 to 2010 in Fars Province was calculated using world standard population. We also used linear regression and chi-squared tests.
Results: Over the period of study (7 years), 12954 people died in RTA. The age- and sex-standardized mortality rate was 27 per 100, 000. While the rate of death due to RTA had an incremental rate in age group 18-30 years and among women, it had a decreasing trend in age groups 35-45, under18 and among men.
Conclusion: An increase in mortality rate of RTA among people aged 18-30 yr and women need to be addressed by health policy makers and other involved sections.
