I know that, my point is that not everyone knows that, and even when they do know that, it can be hard to spot because orange and red are similar colours. If someone has been driving for 20 years, their eyes will be "trained" to look out for green changing to red. Changing the lights to more conventional lights is easier than trying to re-educate tens of thousands of drivers.

And it's not always possible to have your full attention focused on those lights when you've got to keep an eye in your mirrors for tinted Land Cruisers weaving all over your rear bumper.

Palm Jumeirah not sinking says Police chief



Police Commander-in-Chief Major-General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina said the rumours that a part of the island was under water was false.

“Major-General AlMuzainah, Commander in Chief of Dubai Police and Dubai’s Crisis and Disaster Management Team Leader, denied rumors spreaded through social networking sites stating that a part of Palm Jumeirah Island was submerged by sea water,” a Facebook post from the police said. It is nothing more than a leak from the main water pipe which led to the disruption of traffic movement. ‘‘Competent bodies were in the field resolving the issue and traffic movement went back to normal.”

There were reports on Thursday of a pipe burst in a building on the island and that the surrounding area was flooded causing traffic snarls. Police confirmed this in a tweet which said: “Traffic congestion has been reported on Palm Jumeirah exit due to work maintenance by Dewa.”

It's simple. if you are not able to distinguish between 2 colours, or your eyes are not trained (lol) . Please hand your driving License in before you kill someone .

If it was that simple, there wouldn't be a problem.

Nakheel appoints builder for Palm Boardwalk project

By Andy Sambidge
Monday, 29 September 2014 4:01 PM

Nakheel said on Monday that its 11km Boardwalk project on Dubai's Palm Jumeirah has moved a step closer with the award of a contract to Overseas AST Company.

The AED150 million Boardwalk will include an East and West Pier - each stretching 100 metres out to sea - featuring glass-encased cafes and restaurants.

The piers, to be constructed by Overseas AST Co at either end of the crescent, will each contain 1,000 square metres of decking, Nakheel said in a statement.

Construction is due to start before the end of 2014, with anticipated completion in mid-2016.
