This has reference to the recent article on traffic violations in Dubai.
To inject some urgency and maybe humour in the drive against dangerous driving,perhaps some add on stickers can be added to the existing stickers on the buses, cabs and cars.
These may include:
Caution. ArtIculated Bus. Inarticulate Driver .
Child Always on Board. The Driver refuses to grow up.
Objects in the mirror are nearer than you think. So don’t peep.
Road monitored by Radar. Speeding means end of the road
Also, in the recent past,there have been number of incidents in which drivers have been detained by the police and referred to the public prosecution for apparently wagging their not to be wagged middle finger at other drivers,a charge most vehemently denied by the accused.
This can be addressed by compulsorily making the convicted drivers wear thick gloves with sewn middle and index together so as to make the offensive gesture impossible.
Finally, to reward the majority of drivers who stick to all the driving rules and do not have a single traffic violation in a twelve month period, RTA ought to offer a hefty discount on their vehicle’s registration amount.
