Dubai: Emirates Transport Media Dept.
Emirates Transport (ET) announced a 23 percent decrease in the total traffic accidents involving its fleet of vehicles in 2019, compared to 2018.
This decrease was achieved due to ET’s ongoing traffic safety efforts and initiatives, despite an increase in the number of ET’s fleet of vehicles and an increase in their total mileage.
Mohammed Abdullah Al Jarman, general manager of Emirates Transport, said that the company is continuing to implement plans and procedures to ensure traffic safety in its various activities and businesses, and is implementing strict standards to achieve the highest levels of safety and security, while providing transport services to its customers.
Al Jarman also stated that the Traffic Accident Studies Report for 2019 revealed a decrease in the percentage of registered accidents that ET drivers are responsible for by 19% compared to 2018, noting that moderate damage accidents accounted for 37% and minor damage were 58% of the total accidents caused by drivers.
He added that the size of the company’s transport fleet increased at the end of 2019 to nearly 40,000 vehicles, an increase of 34 percent compared to 2018.
The ET general manager noted that this growth is due to an increase in the number of contracts signed by the company, and the consequent increase in its volume of business.
The total vehicle mileage completed by ET’s fleet increased to 482 million kilometres in 2019, an increase of 5 percent over the previous year.
