Isn’t reckless driving considered as a major traffic infraction in the UAE?

It seems like it is time to grab hold of people driving in a reckless manner and parking haphazardly in parking lots as well.

Driving on a rainy day, especially when the streets are almost flooded, is hazardous. The government and transport authorities went all out to issue travel warnings and alerts due to the bad weather that the UAE experienced recently. However, its surprising to see how people still go forward blindly, risking their lives and that of others.

This motorist, seen in the photograph, is a clear example of such people who are in a hurry regardless of the rains and bad weather. Why can’t people be more careful?
