Make reck­less driv­ers do com­mu­nity ser­vice

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

I am leav­ing Dubai af­ter seven years, dur­ing which I’ve seen all man­ner of reck­less driv­ing: peo­ple who are not pro­tect­ing their kids in the car, us­ing the phone, eat­ing, putting on make up, the list goes on - and it’s still hap­pen­ing. I sug­gest that the gov­ern­ment make peo­ple do com­mu­nity ser­vice when a fine is nor­mally given. Fre­quent vi­o­la­tors need to un­dergo fur­ther test­ing, watch a movie on traf­fic ac­ci­dents (and the con­se­quence) and speak with peo­ple who have been af­fected by ac­ci­dents. My point is if that can­not teach peo­ple a les­son or two then they should have their li­cence re­voked per­ma­nently. Hard mea­sures yes but it’s scary on our roads. Take care of your­self and oth­ers out there, and hope­fully the Dubai roads will be a good place to be on. Blackie Dubai
