There are several ways one can invite accidents. I witness one such situation very often.

It occurs just in front of a mall in the Tourist Club Area of Abu Dhabi. Many a times, cars stop to pick or drop passengers, delivery vans stop to off-load items, or even tourist buses stop to drop people.

The extreme right line is the place where all this is happening. This is a road where traffic exists at all times during the day and these violations create blocks and near misses.

The concerned authorities should come out with a mechanism or safety system to alert and avoid the recurrence of this practice.
