Driving in Dubai and the rest of the UAE is blood sport for some young men. A crash happens, on average, every two minutes.2 The rate of fatalities is among the world’s highest. Each day three people die in UAE traffic wrecks,3 two of them killed by reckless drivers. The carnage is a public health crisis on par with a serious outbreak of plague or smallpox. Crashes are responsible for about 15 percent of all deaths in Dubai and the rest of the Gulf region, the biggest killer after heart disease.4 In neighboring Abu Dhabi, where driving is arguably worse than Dubai, road wrecks are already the leading cause of death.5 All told, more than 1,000 people died in UAE car crashes in 2007, an increase of nearly 200 over 2006. It’s amazing the death toll isn’t higher.
