Are UAE drivers tolerant? Survey says…

Constantly fuming while behind the wheel?

Well, you’re not alone!


A recent survey measured how tolerant UAE motorists are with each other while on the road.

RoadSafetyUAE, together with ethical insurance firm Noor Takaful, conducted the first-of-its-kind behaviour research in line with the country’s Year of Tolerance theme for 2019.

The survey showed that 50% of respondents believe that road users are tolerant to each other in general.

However, 73% admitted to road rage, ranging from ‘often’ to ‘sometimes’ due to reckless driving habits of other drivers.

The survey also revealed that 58% observed rude retaliating driving or stopping and blocking traffic as an act of road rage, while 36% witnessed offensive gestures and 24% foul language.

Thomas Edelmann, founder and managing director of RoadSafetyUAE, said that the results from the research will help to understand the behaviours exhibited by the country’s drivers.
