‘Half my salary is spent pay­ing off park­ing fines’

7 Days in Dubai - - COMMUNITY -

I am a res­i­dent of In­ter­na­tional City. Be­sides hav­ing my own apart­ment, I have to take an­other unit for my par­ents. What I couldn’t be­lieve un­til this very mo­ment was that I can’t make an im­por­tant ap­point­ment af­ter 6pm on any day for the rea­son I won’t be able to get a le­gal park­ing spot for my car not un­less I drive around search­ing for an hour or so. And the worst part of it all, if I get to park my car some­where that is not block­ing any­one’s car or the way out or even the way in, po­lice are al­ways ready to pro­vide a ticket as they think park­ing that way is still il­le­gal. Some­thing has to be done here at least a con­sid­er­a­tion of not get­ting a fine every day will re­ally help peo­ple like met who work a 12-shift and get paid just to pay fines, al­most half of my salary each month.
