Living in Dubai: Expat View on Driving

In Dubai, you will find that all expats drive. Speeding is common here. Avoid driving on the extreme left lane of highways to avoid being “flashed” and being forced to move a lane over. Incidents of road rage is not uncommon given the peak hour traffic jams and poor driving courtesy. Rude hand gestures (the “finger”, etc.) and profanity can lead to fines and jail time if reported, so keep your cool if you are cut off or are behind an erratic driver. In general, you will find those gestures and actions that some may find only slightly offensive in your home nation, or perhaps not offensive at all, can at times be extremely offensive to the Dubai locals. Therefore, using a degree of common sense will usually help you stay out of trouble.
