There are still a few of us who know how to drive

7 Days in Dubai - - PUZZLES -

Si­mon, I agree with many of the points you make in your mis­sive (Soap­box, Septem­ber 15), par­tic­u­larly when we can all im­prove our driv­ing, un­for­tu­nately what comes across loud and clear is you ap­pear to drive like most ev­ery­one else, dis­re­spect­ing driv­ing stan­dards and driver ethics. This on the premise you came to these lovely shores with some sem­blance of driv­ing skills... What you also do is to type­cast drivers say­ing we all drive like each other... this is ab­so­lutely not true – from ex­pe­ri­ence, a small per­cent­age of drivers still main­tain­ing driv­ing skills, driver eti­quette and the age old prac­tice of an­tic­i­pat­ing what the mind­less mo­rons (drivers???) do, al­beit ex­tremely dif­fi­cult with the plethora of un­skilled blither­ing id­iots we face on a daily ba­sis. You are cor­rect in that this sadly is some­thing which will not hap­pen, hence please try to drive with a lit­tle more pa­tience and deco­rum in­stead of join­ing the masses, I know it’s dif­fi­cult...
