Writer con­cerned that any­one can drive into car park at his block of flats

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

“The same hap­pens in JLT. All the un­der­ground car parks have bar­ri­ers for res­i­dents and work­ers but cars with­out carpark passes wait in the road and sneak in tail­gat­ing those who have a pass through the bar­ri­ers. Se­cu­rity guards are pow­er­less to do any­thing about it, fear­ing that the driver who shouldn’t be there will make a com­plaint against them. We can’t do any­thing if a ran­dom car is in your al­lo­cated space, they won’t get towed away. There are no checks on th­ese cars to see what they con­tain - it could be some­one try­ing to scam a free day’s park­ing or some­thing a lot more sin­is­ter.”


“If a build­ing has a bar­rier thingy then I don’t see any cars com­ing and go­ing as they please. I find most build­ings pretty good with this ac­tu­ally I am go­ing to guess you’re talk­ing about a spe­cific build­ing in which case maybe have a chat with man­age­ment.”


“This is sim­ply down to the na­tion­al­ity of the driver – seen the same in the in­ter­na­tional schools where all but 10% have to pro­vide ID to get ac­cess – priv­i­lege of pass­port!”
