Car accidents in UAE declined during BlackBerry Outage



Last week users in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) faced BlackBerry Internet Service outages.  The outage went out for a few days, and even hit the US and Canada for about a day as well.  According to police in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai traffic accidents dropped by 20% and 40% in Abu Dhabi during the BlackBerry outage week.

Texting/BBMing while driving is a huge issue for many as some can’t help but give in to the addiction.  There’s great apps to help eliminate looking at your BlackBerry and typing away such as DriveSafely.
