Why Traffic is an Issue in Kuwait

The world at large is watching as Kuwait imposes incredibly strict sanctions on traffic law violating expats – deportation. Many are wondering why go to such extremes? Why are expats getting the heat for traffic violations? What actions would be taken against a citizen with a similar blemished record as an expat facing deportation?

In a country where the ratio of expat:citizen is 2:1, it is sound mathematical judgment to assume that there is a 75% chance that an accident involves an expat, and then a 50% chance that it is their fault.

The result of such accidents can be seen as follows:

Having not been at the site of these accidents, one cannot jump to a conclusion as to assign blame; however, the fact remains that these accidents DO happen and they happen FREQUENTLY.

Is deportation the answer? Can it positively affect the rising tide of apathetic speeders?

Only time will tell.
