The UAE has launched a nation-wide road safety drive, with Dubai Chamber, private school bus operator STS and RoadSafetyUAE revealing alarming statistics.

In a recent workshop conducted by Dubai Chamber, it was revealed that 90-95% of road accidents occur due to human error.

With an alarming number of accidents involving youth, following a new survey, RoadSafetyUAE has teamed up with bus drivers to create an ‘Extended Classroom’ to educate children.

The survey was conducted in February 2017 and is based on a representative sample of more than 1,000 UAE residents.
