Almost 50% of vehicle accidents in UAE involve 30- to 40-year-olds, said a new study. Moreover, the greatest number of road accidents in the country take place between 12pm to 8pm, peaking at 6pm to 8pm and 12pm to 2pm, the report added.
Awareness group Road Safety UAE and auto insurers Tokio Marine revealed the statistics after studying 2,500 summer claims. The study also revealed that Indians, UAE nationals, Egyptians, Pakistani, and Filipinos were most involved in accidents.
RoadSafetyUAE teamed up with Tokio Marine to analyse their 2021 July-September (Q3) motor insurance claims data to come up with these insights, aimed at raising awareness and protecting UAE motorists.
Thomas Edelmann, founder and managing director of RoadSafetyUAE said, “Road users are potentially dehydrated, the roads are marked with tire debris more than usual, vehicle maintenance is of key importance and the climatic conditions can pose further challenges.”
He added, “UAE motorists need to be especially careful from 12 pm-8 pm and in particular in the accident peak times 6-8 pm and 12-2 pm, while 30-40 years old motorists are most prone to accidents. We cannot let our guard down, as almost 50 per cent of accidents we get involved in are the fault of other road users.”
