Beware Of Road Surprises

I just drove down Sheikh Zayed Road from Mall of the Emirates to Jebel Ali Village. The traffic slowed to a standstill no less than five times. First, because of an assortment of quilted jacket sleeves was strewn across the road. Second, half a dozen sheets of plywood on the road. Third, a clutch of kitchen cabinet doors, complete with hinges and handles, you guessed it, on the road. Fourth, the aftermath of a small collision: two vehicles, one police car and one ambulance on the hard shoulder. Fifth, on the small roundabout at Junction 6, a water tanker and a van, apparently parked in the middle of the road, leaving almost no space to pass them. Turned out the van had rear-ended the tanker - slight damage to the van, none whatsoever to the tanker, nobody hurt. But the idiot drivers refused to move their vehicles.

Still about four hours till iftar.
