Road safety is a matter for us all - Letters to the editor - The National Dt 14 January 2014

Road safety is a matter for us all

Road safety is a matter for us all

I regularly drive between Abu Dhabi and Dubai and concur with the views expressed about road safety in the UAE (Offences show a fatal disregard for UAE traffic rules, January 7).

It all comes down to the attitude of drivers on our roads. It seems to me that it is always the same set of drivers who speed.

If you observe the traffic coming back from Abu Dhabi on Thursdays, or any normal day after 3pm, you will see many cars driving at a fast pace, bumper to bumper, with the drivers trying to bully their way past other vehicles.

The authorities should show no leniency towards anybody, as the rules are meant for the safety of everyone on the road.

The police and transport authorities should join forces with all government and private institutions to make sure that everybody understands and obeys the traffic rules.
