Dovne journalister er der nok af

metroXpress skriver den 9. juli i forbindelse med begyndelsen af ramadanen og trafiksikkerhed:

“Der er aldrig foretaget en undersøgelse af, hvordan (bus)chauffører kører, når de faster”

Det tog mig sådan set kun 1 minut at søge mig frem til:

Sleep-related collisions in United Arab Emirates.  Af Al-Houqani M, Eid HO, Abu-Zidan FM. Department of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, UAE University, United Arab Emirates. Accid Anal Prev. 2013 Jan;50:1052-5. doi: 10.1016/j.aap.2012.08.010. Epub 2012 Aug 24.

der konkluderer:

RESULTS:

444 drivers (92% males) were involved in RTC during the study period. Sleepiness of drivers was a contributing factor in 5%. Most of the drivers experiencing SRC (79%) reported speeds of 100km/h or more during the collision. SRC was strongly over-represented during the month of Ramadan (42%) and in driving on highways (83%). A logistic regression model has shown that driving during the lunar month of Ramadan (p<0.0001, OR=6.36) and on highways (p=0.037, OR=3.75) were the most significant independent contributors to increasing the odds of SRC.

CONCLUSION:

Sleep is an important contributing factor to RTC in UAE. Drivers should be advised to discontinue driving when feeling sleepy especially during the lunar month of Ramadan and while driving on highways.

Og hvis jeg havde søgt videre var der ganske givet kommet flere undersøgelser frem. Rådet for Sikker Trafik, som journalisten henviser til, har intet på sin side om ramadan og trafik.

Jeg kan kun sige det samme som en kendt TV-serie: “Pas på derude!”

Taxi-chauffør og dusørjæger – på jagt efter kvinder på flugt fra tvangsægteskab

On the face of it, Zakir was simply a veteran taxi driver and a popular member of the community in Bradford, northern England.

Few customers would have realised that behind his bubbly exterior he provided another, much more sinister service. For around £5,000, Zakir would track down women and girls who had run away from home to escape a forced marriage. A bounty hunter, Zakir’s mission was to bring them back to their families.

While most locals in the tightly knit south Asian community thought Zakir was merely picking up and dropping off passengers each day, his work provided perfect cover to exploit his contacts with fellow drivers and shopkeepers to hunt down runaway teenagers. According to Zakir, some bounty hunters would also befriend officials in housing departments and in the Department for Work and Pensions to get National Insurance numbers — a strategy confirmed by campaigners against forced marriages.

 As for the former bounty hunter Zakir, he is clear about what will stop the problem. “Nothing. Families will do anything in the name of honour.”

Ramadanen gør chauffører trætte

I går var første dag i ramadanen – den muslimske fastemåned. Det betyder, at de mange tusinde passagerer i bybusserne fragtes rundt af chauffører, der er trætte og ukoncentrerede på grund af væskemangel. Værst står det til i København. For her er 70 procent af chaufførerne muslimer.

Ned på knæ for herrefolket

Multikulturel Forening i Århus tager skarpt afstand fra buschaufføren, der afviste en tildækket muslimsk kvinde.

“Han må stå til en reprimande, og for os er det vigtigt, at han kommer til at stå ansigt til ansigt med familien og beklager,” siger Rabih Azad-Ahmad.

Det er ikke mindst Skjoldungen glad for at høre. Han bekender sig til Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster og kan herefter dele buskort med alle de andre, som tilhører denne, verdens hurtigst voksende religion:

“The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.”Adolf Hitler.
