En­tire fleet of cars seem to be miss­ing in­di­ca­tors

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

Can we please raise aware­ness to­wards a mas­sively im­por­tant safety is­sue on the roads of UAE? An en­tire fleet of ve­hi­cles seems to have been un­leashed on our roads with­out a key safety com­po­nent fit­ted - the turn sig­nal. A turn sig­nal is an ex­tremely im­por­tant

Dear Eve­lyn, while I don’t want to see an an­i­mal suf­fer it is no sur­prise that peo­ple were re­luc­tant to help an in­jured stray. I own a dog and can vouch for just how ex­pen­sive it is to get vet­eri­nary care. Every time I take my dog to the vet, it costs the equiv­a­lent of din­ner at a nice restau­rant for a check over and a cou­ple of pills. I pay as he is part of my fam­ily. How­ever, any­one see­ing an in­jured an­i­mal in the street will know that, ul­ti­mately, they will be the ones fac­ing a huge bill for treat­ment. Un­der such cir­cum­stances, is it so strange that they turn a blind eye? Par­tic­u­larly, if the an­i­mal is in an area where in­comes are low? I know there are vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tions that could help but the vet still needs pay­ing and I doubt the groups can help every stray.
