Dear driv­ers, check your blind spots, save us all

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

Com­ing from a coun­try that ad­heres to K53 de­fen­sive driv­ing tech­niques from the time you start to learn to drive, it is so frus­trat­ing driv­ing mer­rily on your way to your next des­ti­na­tion when you al­most get side swiped by the car next to you sim­ply be­cause the driver doesn’t bother to check their blind spots when chang­ing lanes! Makes you won­der if li­censes are earned or bought here with so many driv­ers mak­ing the same mis­take. Hav­ing lit­er­ally just en­coun­tered this on my way home, I would like to thank the fel­low driver who tried to over­take some­one with­out check­ing his blind spot, on a corner no less, for al­most clip­ping me at high speeds and then still giv­ing me grief about it when I called him out on his wrong­do­ing. Ac­knowl­edge­ment or apol­ogy for mis­takes are suf­fice. Thanks An­noyed Dubai
