  1. Funny article. Common sense dictates that you compare the figures to the population constituency of the country.

    Out of the total population, Indians and Pakistanis are together about 50% of the total population and Emiratis are 16% – as per the 2005 census. So if you compare the no. of accidents against the population constituent, the table are turned ad the worst becomes the best!!!. The bottom of the list go to the top!!!

    Wierd artcile

  2. More relevant would be look at the proportion of people of each nationality having a driving license or ownership of a vehicle and then compare those with the nationality break-up of those causing accidents.
