How many traffic offences are committed on UAE roads?!

Whilst driving, we all see people do things we know they shouldn't.

Everyone might bend a rule every now and again!

UAE traffic authorities have announced how many violations were caught in the first 6 months of 2014.


Yep, thats just the ones that were caught!

In total - 8.64 million were caught in 2013 which means this year - we are either driving more dangerously or authorities are just getting better at catching rule breakers.

We have heard that 50% of these offences were speeding!

Mr Abdullah Hamad Al Ghafili from Abu Dhabi Traffic and Patrols Directorate reported in Abu Dhabi at the weekend that 24% of accidents in the first 6 months of this year were caused by negligence and 22% caused by sudden change of lanes.
