Just under a month ago, I announced the 1000 hit mark on my blog. And now, sometime in the past couple of days, I reached the 2000 hit mark! My objective was 1000 hits this month, so I am happy to have achieved this a few days early.
Here's something I wanted to write about yesterday but I was too tired by the time I came across the article, so here it is, a day late: it seems the Municipality and Agriculture Department of Abu Dhabi is trying to come up with ways to alleviate traffic during peak hours.
The department suggested levying fees on the use of busy streets and roads at peak hours will help solve the problem of traffic jams in the city. It also suggested moving certain commercial and entertainment centres outside the city.
I couldn't help but smile when reading this. I commend the A-D Municipality for taking this initiative, it's great that they're thinking of ways to make things better for its citizens, but shouldn't Dubai be the city that's taking these steps? In Abu Dhabi, when a traffic light goes red more than once, it's considered "traffic"! It's Dubai that has the serious traffic issues! Not Abu Dhabi!
