Cutting edge Dubai

Dubai, the ultra modern city of opulence, high tech, cutting edge, state-of-the-art.

Sitting in the RTA-created gridlock again this morning I saw another example of it...

And this morning, as all mornings, there are the sad inadequates who have a need to feed their egos by feeling more important than the rest of us, speeding up the wrong side of the road to push their way into the queue...

The photo that you just posted you can call 8004353 with the registration make and car colour as well as the dangerous driving to be reported and they actually do something about it. I reported a person for blocking the entrance to the building parking. It was another resident who ignored the security staff asking them to move to allow access. The security staff told me yesterday that the resident was really annoyed as they had been fined 2000AED for blacking the road. So it does work

Thanks for the number, and the confirmation that they actually take action. I'll start calling them...

The other number that is really satisfying is 042694848. This is for reporting people who have parked dangerously, stupidly or are blocking you in.

A very nice gentleman will phone up the offender and tell him/her to move or the police will tow them and then phone you back to say if the offender hasn't moved in 5 minutes phone him back and he will send the police. Have used it many times in the MOE when idiots have parked so close I'd have to be an anorexic midget to get in the car.

Thanks Rose, noted.
