When it rains, it pours and Dubai roads are a scary place to be during unstable weather, judging from the stats released by Dubai Police this week.

According to a police report, there were more than 203 traffic accidents on Dubai roads due to the rain and unstable weather and police received nearly 5,800 calls between 6pm on Saturday and 7am on Sunday.

Dubai Police constantly remind drivers to abide by the rules of the road, but it's thought the majority of accidents are caused by drivers driving too fast, and not allowing enough space between cars.
