It is essential to state that the paper "Managing of Traffic Incidents via Customized IMS in the UAE’ s Interior Ministry" is an outstanding example of a management research proposal. Accidents resulting from traffic mishaps cause adverse effects on society’ s socio-economic and environmental framework. For instance, recent statistics presented by the World Health Organization (WHO) indicates that injuries resulting from traffic incidents account for 90% of the deaths recorded annually in developing countries. It makes road traffic injuries the world’ s eighth principal cause of humanity’ s demise. Moreover, prospects predict an increase in the percentage of accidents in the near future, unless developing countries take strategic counteractive measures.
Recent innovative studies via Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) prove the suitability, efficiency, and effectiveness of Incident Management Systems (IMS) in road accidents, specifically by enhancing the management and coordination of police rescue undertakings (Yang, Yang and Plotnick 1854). Unfortunately, the developed countries are the singular benefactors of the IMS. In other words, developing countries are yet to adopt such systems. If developing countries adopt IMS that befits there context, they stand a high chance of preventing disasters such as alienating road injuries and saving countless lives.
However, there are ongoing debates that raise concerns over the adaptability and applicability of IMS in developing countries. It is because; the effectiveness of IMS relies on a complex socio-economic and technological advancement of that particular country, which is absent or poorly, developed in developing countries (Faouzi, Werghi and Al Blushi 57). This research proposal seeks to present a justification for the adoption of a customized IMS in by the interior ministry of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) via a case study assessment on the socio-economic and technical capabilities of the internal framework of the country to deal with rising cases of road accidents. Literature review Recent research findings show that there is a high rate of traffic-related causalities and fatalities in UAE and neighbouring Persian Gulf states in comparison to other developing and developed countries.
The adverse effects of road accidents are far-reaching, such that the countries’ expenditure in curbing the injuries takes an estimated amount of 100 billion US dollars, which exceeds by double the annual international aid awarded to the particular developing countries.
