Just read the news here that the General Commander of Dubai Police, Dhahi Khalfan Tamim stating
"The Dubai traffic police last year managed to reduce traffic-related deaths to 12.8 per 100,000, from 17.8 in 2008 and 21 in 2007, he said. This year, the target is to reduce the number to 11.8." Didn't the population of UAE reduce in 2009 with the recession here? Did they achieve viable results?

Tamim further added traffic safety will be a priority for the police for the next 10 years, for which they will act under a four-pronged strategy.

i, Correcting common mistakes
ii,Road monitoring
iii, Vehicle monitoring
iv, Public road safety awareness

Wouldn't it be better to put Road safety awareness first? It would have been much easier to change the behaviors of drivers using time tested methods of prevention than deploying police to monitor the maniac drivers.

According to General Tamim, "Statistics have shown that improper driving habits cause 90 per cent of traffic accidents in Dubai, while faulty road engineering contributes to another three per cent"

I do not know the source of this stats but it is enough to create a sense of urgency to start tackling the issue by changing the attitude of the drivers.
