Among the Asians, Pakistanis lead with involvement in 172 or 22.8 per cent of the total number of 765 accidents.

Eight people died and 289 were injured in accidents involving Pakistanis.

They were followed by Indians who were involved in 159 or 20.7 per cent of the total number of accidents, in which 15 people died and 249 were injured.

Emiratis were next with 149 or 14.9 per cent of total accidents in which 13 died and 214 people were injured.

Egyptians came fourth with 42 or 5.4 per cent of total accidents in which four died and 53 were hurt.

Expats from Japan and Latin American countries like Brazil and Argentina were not involved in any road accident during the first six months of 2012.
