To veterans of the city, the results come as no surprise – traffic accidents in the UAE happen to be a frequent occurrence with terrible repercussions.

From January to May of 2014, the Dubai Traffic Police stated that there were a total of 1,116 traffic accidents resulting in 88 deaths. An additional 90 people suffered serious injury.

An unexpected result is that 12 per cent of all deaths in the nation are a result of suicide. While there is only a limited amount of information regarding psychological health in the UAE, this shows that it is a problem affecting a large number of people.
