If they are serious on reducing traffics than they should have a proper plan. How this is going to reduce traffic? I don't know. If they are concerned, let them implement Toll only during peak hours and keep it free during normal hours, holidays etc. This system is followed by many major cities in the World.

Dubai has spent billions on roads and infrastructure. We have big clean highways, flyovers, and bridges with landscaping and trees that are just beautiful. For a country that doesnt have tax, i would gladly pay the few dirhams to support the RTA in keeping Dubai as beautiful as it is.

If Transport Authority is serious to reduce the Traffic on UAE roads its easy and simple just issue the route permit to private vans and buses to pick up the passengers. When the peoples will get easily vans and buses in front of their doors with reasonable fare. Every one will prefer to use this service instead of own car.
