A few days ago, I was out with my family for a walk along the Deira Creek. To my surprise, the waterfront had no fence or barrier and a lot of children were cycling on the path nearby. This highlights negligence. The authorities, as well as the parents, must not permit children to cycle in the area. I did not find a warning sign restricting or cautioning people in the area to avoid walking, jogging or cycling in the area for their safety. I sincerely hope that the authorities take action soon regarding this matter.
