Bad driving is always a hot topic in Dubai, and this week, thanks to Kipp’s sister publication, My Policy, we get a better look at which nationality causes the most car accidents in the country.
But does this have any effect on the insurance industry?
Senior journalist at Policy magazine, Hossam Abougabal, tells Kipp: “At the moment most companies calculate their risk based on the value of the insured vehicle and as a consequence vital information such as nationality, age and driving history are often overlooked. Statistics as such are useful in helping the industry recognise the need to re-strategise how they view motor risk.”
