Read­ers re­spond to let­ter on nar­row­ing lanes and other road safety sug­ges­tions

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

“There are too many peo­ple driv­ing with the wrong at­ti­tude. I have seen those SO CALLED driv­ing in­struc­tors and they are the prob­lem is they don’t drive prop­erly or safely. It needs to start in school lessons on driv­ing safely. Un­for­tu­nately there is a cul­ture of if you drive fast you are some kind of hero. In­fact your a clown.”


“What would re­ally mat­ter when it comes to traf­fic vi­o­la­tions would be to have manda­tory com­mu­nity ser­vice, huge fines and make peo­ple watch movies about what can hap­pen if speed­ing, tak­ing over in dan­ger­ous ways. And for those who get caught mul­ti­ple times to spend time with vic­tims that might have ended up in wheel­chairs etc. If some­one doesn’t learn from that then I don’t know what will.”


“If re­ally want to stop the speed­ing on the high­ways bet­ter put humps on ev­ery 2 kilo­me­ters away... Rather than nar­row­ing the road. Imag­ine if you travel 300km you will jump into 150 humps. If you speed up it will end up dam­ag­ing your car sus­pen­sion so no choice re­spect the humps on the high­ways.”
