Kids know more about road rules than adults?

7 Days in Dubai - - COMMUNITY -

I was driv­ing my grand­daugh­ter home from school yes­ter­day when she sud­denly said “Look Granny, that naughty lady is talk­ing on her phone, I hope she doesn’t crash into us”. Yes, the lady in the shiny red Mazda was in fact tex­ting on her phone - in the fast lane of the Sheikh Zayed Road. Af­ter a lit­tle while my grand­daugh­ter said the lady had fin­ished her text. Not 30 sec­onds later, she’d ob­vi­ously re­ceived a re­ply and picked up her phone and started to send­ing an­other text. Each time this lady texted, she slowed down, ob­vi­ously to con­cen­trate on her text and held up the traf­fic. I moved over in to a slower lane, but was still con­cerned that this lady would lose con­cen­tra­tion and crash into me. How come a 7-year-old knows the rules of the road bet­ter than an adult? Al­lah, please keep us all safe whilst we live in this beau­ti­ful coun­try, which is full of crazy driv­ers. Shel­lAR Dubai
