Emiratis score higher than Gulf counterparts on almost all aspects of driver behaviour, survey finds.
UAE motorists behave better on the roads than their Qatari counterparts, according to a survey by three medical experts in Qatar.
The study looked at the behaviour of over one thousand drivers from each country using the Manchester Driver Behaviour Questionnaire, which measures self-reported driving style, Qatar daily The Peninsula reported on Tuesday.
“In spite of the fact that Arab Gulf countries have a higher road accident fatality rate compared to European countries and USA, the DBQ has not been used in Arab countries so far”, the survey team told the newspaper.
UAE drivers scored better on almost all factors in the survey, which looked at errors, pushing-speeding violations, lapses and aggression-speeding violations. Differences between Emirati men and women were negligible, the survey found.
As this was self assement does it mean they are better drivers or better liars? I am sure they believe the are the best drivers
Now that's scary!!!
