Perhaps the man of beard could enlighten us..

After 4 years here, the situation actually seems to be getting worse, rather than better, despite many RTA initiatives..

Too many people with just too much wasta to be worried?

Or is it a case of 'When in Rome..'

Well, just to remind me that things can be worse, I have been travelling on the Jubail Highway in Saudi for the last few days....... These drivers would chew up and spit out the idiots on SZR!!!!

maybe they should stop women from driving LOL

to be honest ... i don't come to dubai alot ... but i drove in riyadh and in makkah and jeddah ... i drove even in lebanon .... it is far more dangrouse than dubai

will for lebanon it is more dangrouse for your car but not for lives because over there you cant really over speed

but in dubai with the high ways ... and the speed of some careless drivers ... it causes death easily

but ... the thing is with the crowded streets where would drivers be able to over speed in dubai?

back to that old chestnut again...

isn't it a shame that just one of these people that have died can't comeback to confirm whether this is true or not?

But don't you agree that it is convenient?

Beardman, ok you quoted me but answered another user..

Could you answer my questions, I will repeat them..

isn't it a shame that just one of these people that have died can't comeback to confirm whether this is true or not?
