BlackBerry cuts made roads safer, police say
A dramatic fall in traffic accidents this week has been directly linked to the three-day disruption in BlackBerry services.Perhaps Blackberry should be expecting that UAE users reward them for the outage.
In Dubai, traffic accidents fell 20 per cent from average rates on the days BlackBerry users were unable to use its messaging service. In Abu Dhabi, the number of accidents this week fell 40 per cent and there were no fatal accidents.
