We need ed­u­ca­tion on road safety, not radars

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

An in­crease of 70 per cent in ac­ci­dents from last year’s num­bers proves that hav­ing radars is not the so­lu­tion. The so­lu­tion lies in teach­ing peo­ple to avoid ac­ci­dents such as tail­gat­ing, us­ing the mo­bile phone while driv­ing and send­ing mes­sages and, the most im­por­tant point I see is, hog­ging the left lane, which causes tail­gat­ing. I have seen big 4x4s stick­ing on an­other’s car be­hind so dan­ger­ously that the car in front pan­ics and ei­ther brakes or tries to go to the right, re­sult­ing in a ma­jor ac­ci­dent.
