MetadataShow full item record
Abstract—The aim of the study was to evaluate relevant factors related to causes of Road Traffic Accidents, RTAs, among drivers in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, UAE. A questionnaire was developed and piloted in the UK and UAE. There were two versions of questionnaires distributed, one in Arabic language and the second one in English language. All respondents completed and signed a consent form which included information on their rights to withdraw from the study. Six hundred questionnaires were distributed in Abu Dhabi, with the help of two research assistants, from which 291 questionnaires from 185 males and 106 females were returned. The results have identified a number of factors as causes of road traffic accidents in Abu Dhabi and suggested ways to reduce the high RTAs reported in the country. The paper argues that the government should continue to encourage participation of all relevant stakeholders for RTAs reduction initiatives.
