Based on the Traffic Police Department of Dubai (TPD), the city has the highest rate of accidents with different types of injuries and fatality comparing with the rest of the Emirates. Also reported that more than 70% of accidents caused by foreign drivers, and driving behaviour is the main reason for 80% of the accidents. Furthermore, understanding the impact of drivers’ behaviour play an important role in road safety. The purpose of this research is to study the influence of home-country on drivers behaviour and evaluate the relationship between the nationality of drivers and their driving behaviour in terms of accidents and traffic violations. Moreover, the study provides suitable recommendations to improve the training programs to be more effective in increasing the concentration of drivers on their behaviour and suggests any evaluation program to monitor the drivers' behaviour in terms of their violations and accidents participation to ensure that they could set to extra training sessions if needed.
