قد أموت

مشيت في جميرا اليوم. كل الـ5 مرات عبرت فيها الشارع قد أقتل من قبل السيارات.

5 مرات!

قبل قليل، رجعت البيت وقرأت هذا وهذا.

نعم، وحتى لو وقفنا بصبر عند ممرات المشاة العابرة الشوارع السير، نمنع من المشي بسلام. لماذا؟ لآن السائقين لا يخجلون ان هناك عابر صبور يريد عبر الشارع، والشارع فيه سيارات لا تريد الوقوف كي يعبر الماشي البسيط.

رجاءً، يا ايها القارءين: اوقفوا للعابرين الشارع، حين يكون واقفاً عند المعبر الزيبرا.

you are correct, a lot of drivers here are very inconsiderate toward pedestrians... i see that almost everyday

(sorry for the english comment- no arabic keyboard :) )

i gotta comment in english as well now :)

on a serious note, i tend to always stop at zebra crossings (except the stupidly designed one on airport road just after the underpass/bridge near the cargo village/rotana).

i make it more the point to be seen to stop than just to stop. and i enjoy stopping if i have a fast 3abood in his G500 or an impatient Raju in his Sunny, or an irritated Jane in her Pajero just to point out that once you're out of your car, you're a pedestrian, and pedestrians have rights. what came first? the man or the car? of course the man, so give him his rights.

mind you stopping is one thing, but getting the pedestrian to cross is another.. you can bring the horse to the water, but you cannot force it to drink :)

hehe... Yep, one of the main reasons I don't drive is because I fear that my stubbornness would cost me my life... If some idiot's flashing me on the fast lane, I'd just not move... Not move at all. Which will cause, I'm sure, a lot of damage, to both of us. :)

lol i can think of more efficient ways to make a lot of damage than going slow on a fast lane..

after all isn't that what UAQ drivers do in Dubai?

u remind me so much with a friend of mine (emirati as well) who spent close to 10 yrs in the states and upon returning to dubai last year has refused to drive etc..
