Mo­tor­cy­clists call for their own lane to help saves lives on the roads

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS... -

“Cre­at­ing a bike lane will just give some ar­ro­gant drivers an­other way of avoid­ing wait­ing in line.” WAR­WICK GEHLIG

“Well stop squeez­ing ur­selfe be­tween the cars at 190kph and you’ll be fine.”

MO­HAM­MAD GHRAIBEH

“I thought bik­ers al­ready had their own lane. Isn’t it the one on the left of the fast lane?”

LEE CARTER

“Wear­ing the right bik­ing gear will save lives... Just a hel­met isn’t enough! Proper re­in­forced biker pants, jack­ets and boots! Not flimsy trousers, t-shirt and open-toed slip­pers!”

ADILA NASSER

“Not bike lanes, but dis­ci­plin­ing these bike mos­qui­toes will save lives. I drive a bike too and I drive it with the dis­ci­pline of a car. Don’t drive be­tween lanes and fol­low cars. Give in­di­ca­tors upon turn­ing or use hand sig­nals and al­ways run you head­lights on high beam as safety mea­sures. The prob­lem is the id­i­otic driv­ing schools have very low dis­ci­plined bike driv­ing pro­to­cols. They should copy US bike laws as we copy the world and show off.”
