Residents and visitors encouraged not to use cars
- On the day that former US president George Bush visits Dubai in December 2008, Shaikh Zayed Road was completely empty of cars as police sealed off areas of Dubai from all traffic. On February 17, 2009, authorities are hoping that there would be less cars on the roads as the emirate celebrates no-car day.
