Can we have road signs in our languages too?
Over the past few years the demographic of the UAE has changed. Perhaps consideration could now be given to the fact that there are now far more Russian, French, Mandarin and Tagalog speakers than ever before. Native speakers of English are fewer. New signage should reflect the changing nature of the expatriate population. Urdu speakers, due to their fortunate ability to read Arabic, are happily catered for. AH UAE “Share the road” – this has always been our advocacy to promote safe cycling. Motorists and cyclists should respect each other to have a fair share while on the road. To my fellow cyclists, find a place where you can ride safely, there are plenty of cycle tracks to choose from and great places around Dubai to explore by bicycle. And to the motoring public, the road is yours but please share a little kindness to those riders along the road. We value our health and safety just like everyone. Have a safe ride folks!

Some large multinational companies do have graduate programmes or you could try an unpaid internship to get the required experience to better sell yourself. Captain Pugwash UAE
