ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Saturday, February 7th 2015 [ME NewsWire]

According to statistics released by the Abu Dhabi Police Traffic and Patrols Directorate, as many as 227 traffic accidents occurred last year due to failure to leave sufficient distance between vehicles, which represent 12% of the traffic accident causes last year.
