Learn road rules before getting behind the wheel
Dear road users, has anyone actually taught you about ‘lane discipline’?
These roads in the UAE are not ‘Freeways’ where you can drive or overtake in ANY lane. These are highways where the outside lanes are for OVERTAKING.
Please note under Dubai’s Police fines No.109: “It is an offence to not give way for vehicles to pass on the left” -Dhs200 fine. Under fines No.115: “It is an offence to overtake on the right” - 4 points and Dhs200 fine. Thus, all the people that drive in the outside lanes are forcing people to break the law by overtaking on the inside. Perhaps I have been spoilt in the past by driving in the UK.
This is where people are taught to MOVE OVER to the slower lanes once they have finished their overtaking manoeuvre. Do we have to re-train the driving instructors here as they REALLY don’t have a clue?
