Reader offers tip to make life better on the roads
Do you want to be the best driver of Dubai? Get in lane with enough anticipation. Do not drive over the continuous white and yellow lines (think of this as if the paint is fresh and you don’t want to spoil your car). Never engage reverse if you miss an exit; just continue until next exit. If you approach a roundabout, take the right lane if you want to turn right; take the lane in the middle if you want to go straight and take the third lane if you want to turn left. Do not drive on the shoulders; Do not drive over the chevrons; Stop at Zebra crossings.
Stay in your lane; Use emergency flashing lights only in case of emergency, not when you are slowing down. Both hands on the wheel, 8:00 and 4:00 position (it used to be 10:2 position but now you have an ABS bag). Don’t be aggressive on the road; be kind and tolerant. Mobile phone? What phone!!!
