9 things that Dubai drivers need to stop doing
Errm…driving that close to my car won’t make me go any faster. In fact, it just makes me want to drive slower.
2. Playing the guessing game
We don’t want to guess whether you’re going to turn left or right. Use the indicator – a brilliant device that flashes light on the outside of your car to let others know where you’re going.
3. Double parking
If we had a dirham for every time that we've been late for a work meeting because someone thought it would be fun to park us in, we'd have enough money to buy our own parking lot.
4. Driving at 30km/h on Sheikh Zayed Road
You can't really expect someone to stay calm when you’re driving way under the speed limit. We value safe drivers but driving too slow can be, and in some cases is, just as dangerous as driving too fast.
5. Using two parking spots
The struggle to find parking in most malls or around residential and commercial towers is R.E.A.L so, we don’t want to see your car on the other side of the line. Also, if you do that, don't be mad when you come to find your car with a few added dents.
6. Driving between lanes
Having trouble seeing the road markings, ey?
7. Using the wrong lane at a roundabout
Those who still haven’t got the hang of Trade Centre roundabout may use alternate routes. As fun as driving around in circles is, it gets boring after the third time.
8. Speeding on interchanges and flyovers
The round white signs with a red rim indicate what speed you should be driving at. Attention people, pay attention.
9. Dropping off or picking up people on the main road
Don’t blame the cabbies! They are not the only ones who do it. If you need to pick someone up or drop someone off, please use the space assigned. Do not make your own. K, thanks!
