Are motorcylists above the law on the UAE’s roads?
I’m sure that this has been written about a thousand times before but it continues to frustrate me - the motorcyclists (couriers, delivery bikes and recreational) that seem to not be confined by law or rules on Dubai roads. Most of the accidents I see are from bikes in the middle of the road. They slide between cars creating their own imaginary lanes and at red lights they drive up to the front, they pass on hard shoulders. Why have I, in almost a decade here, never seen one pulled over? This and the lack of indicator use, cutting queues, tailgating and speeding and other forms of reckless driving are great reasons for dashcams. To submit to police. I enjoy driving in Dubai but it becomes very frustrating when people here still drive in a lazy and selfish manner. Mick, Dubai
