Does Downtown attract all the crazy drivers?
I had to laugh at the letter about the woman applying her make-up while driving in Downtown.
Maybe they had a convention for inconsiderate drivers on Emaar Boulevard this week as I was unfortunate enough to encounter another while out for a walk around 8.15am on Wednesday.
After looking both ways while attempting to cross the road near Burj Residences, I deemed it safe enough to cross as the only car was quite a way away.
However this must have dented the suited driver’s pride as he sped up when he saw me attempting to cross the road before beeping in anger at me. Only to have to stop himself to check he was OK to pull out on to Emaar Boulevard.
Seriously, Mr Silver 4x4, how is somebody already that tense and angry at that time in the morning, you’d probably been out of bed for all of 30 minutes and already you’re beeping your horn at a woman for trying to cross a road.
Calm down - trade the coffee for a herbal tea.
The attitude towards pedestrians in this country is disgusting, it’s almost like drivers think we don’t deserve to try and walk anywhere.
Keen walker, Downtown
