Queue ‘bosses’ to blame for road chaos

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

I drive most of the time dur­ing peak hours and you to an­a­lyse driver be­hav­iour, par­tic­u­larly queue jumpers. These guys never bother the tol­er­ance lev­els of pa­tient driv­ers in line. They skip the con­ges­tion and form their own line. The il­le­gally con­structed new lane of ve­hi­cles tries to jump into the ex­ist­ing lanes, which forms a bot­tle­neck and ter­ri­ble slow down. In or­der to pro­vide space to such bad driv­ers to fall into the right lane, we end up be­ing pushed onto the emer­gency lane. Af­ter these bosses en­ter our lane, we have to fall back and fol­low them. Even when the emer­gency lane is oc­cu­pied un­in­ten­tion­ally, there’s no chance for an am­bu­lance or fire en­gine to pass by. It’s high time to de­ploy un­der­cover po­lice to hook and fine such hooli­gans. My re­quest to all is to avoid this habit, as the emer­gency ve­hi­cles may be car­ry­ing your fam­ily or friend. You must not re­gret later. Daniel Varghese Dubai
