Most countries have something rather usual on top of their death cause list. Mostly these are heart and blood circulation diseases, cancer is also always among the main causes and in some countries the HI virus has claimed the most deaths. In Dubai, the main cause of death is a traffic accident. Perhaps you?ll find out why, if you want to cross one of the big roads like Sheikh Zayed road and can?t find a traffic light (on which I wouldn?t encessarily rely on?). People speed around and do not always respect traffic rules. But this is only one side of Dubai?s trafficproblem. On the other side, the city?s streets are not growing with the same speed as Dubai?s population and their cars. So, during rush hours (early from 8:00 am on and in the afternoon from 4:00 pm), it is likely to see the mother of all traffic jams. Try to avoid these hours and check if your point of destination is within walking distance. Everything is better than to sit almost two hours trapped in a bus (or a car).
