Default Is it just me?

A small venting ...

Everytime I want to go anywhere within Sharjah, or Dubai, there only ever seems to be one way of getting there, and once any minor mistake has been made, I must drive at least 2 km to find the next U-Turn all of it in stop and go nasty, nasty traffic.

I have numerous maps, but they seem to be of no help !

It is truly the worst laid-out place I have ever lived.

Thoughts ??

you are 1000% correct....I like the slip roads from the fast lane...very smooth.....and all the road signs point to Dubai once u get to the dessert...... and best of all I love getting texts and e-mails telling me I have another speeding ticket when every other car overtakes me......

The UAE is basically one big slip road going onto another slightly smaller slip road. They built up everything around these roads to make it seem interesting.
