Civilized Abu Dhabi


Civilized Abu Dhabi

This is a most civilized country, at least as traffic is concerned. As I sit on my balcony sipping an adult beverage, I note that there are no horns honking and no sirens blaring. It's 8 PM on Friday evening and the streets are full. Traffic is moving apace but its quiet.
I put this down to a civilized population that is a tad patient and who believes in not intruding on the next person. I've seen some strange driving habits (passing on the apron on the freeway, for instance) and most likely some aggressive tendencies but no horn honking. I love it.
I thought it might be illegal to use a horn, but I looked it up and no, horn honking is as legal as men in white robes.
