on a slighlt more related note, this is for all you SZR lovers.......

Shaikh Zayed Road is the deadliest of them all

By Alia Al Theeb, Staff Reporter


Dubai: Shaikh Zayed Road has turned out to be Dubai's deadliest road, with the highest number of fatalities in road accidents in 2005.

Statistics from Dubai Police's Traffic Department showed that 32 people died and 151 were injured in 174 accidents on the city's arterial road in 2005.

Around 236 people were killed in road accidents in 2005, an increase of nearly 15 per cent compared to the previous year.

Brigadier Mohammad Saif Al Zafein, Director of the General Traffic Department of Dubai Police, said the growing population is the main cause behind the increasing number of deaths in traffic accidents.

He said Dubai's population grew from 1.1 million to 1.3 million over the 2004-2005 period.

"However, the number of deaths per capita has decreased," Brigadier Al Zafein told Gulf News yesterday. "The number of deaths per capita decreased from 20 deaths per 100,000 in 2004 to 17 deaths per 100,000 in 2005."

Brigadier Al Zafein said the department will have special traffic control teams for different traffic offences as one of the steps to reduce deaths by road accidents by the year-end. "We will increase traffic controls and have specialised teams monitoring different traffic offences. For example, there will be a team for the offence of jumping red lights, another for speeding and reckless driving, and so on," he said.

Statistics showed that run-over accidents killed 91 people out of 236 and topped the list of reasons behind traffic accidents last year with 505 accidents. Speeding came next with 53 deaths followed by not leaving a safe space between vehicles, which killed 15 people.

The age group of 21 to 30 was the most vulnerable with 85 deaths.

To give some perspective on the UAE statistic of 17 deaths per 100,000 people - the UK per capita road death rate is 6 per 100,000
