Lessons from 'less careful' drivers of Dubai

Many times, we find ourselves baffled by "less careful" drivers on the roads - E V E R Y D A Y. I used to fret a lot about them because road attitude to me is a big deal. One big mistake can harm you, or kill you.

But thanks to a brighter perspective. I started seeing and taking things lightly and positively.  We don't learn some of the most important driving lessons in any driving school.

I mean...

When somebody is flashing behind and over speeding, there might be a really critical emergency in the family.

When somebody is not paying attention and not using indicators, he must be tired from stressful work.

When somebody is on the phone and is less attentive on the road, he must be missing his family so much and that's the only chance they could talk.

When somebody is driving so slow, his engine might have some issues.

When somebody caused an accident, he may be out of focus because of serious depression.

When a pedestrian is crossing so slow on the street, he might have just lost his job.

It's not about consenting such behaviors. It's about tolerating the fact that these happen to everybody. Careless drivers can really get into our nerves.  Instead of judgment, I choose to give the benefit of the doubt and keep it positive. I do not escalate it within myself.

When you find yourself in similar situations, don't let them define your mood - just give way and move on quickly.

It's imperative to be kind at all times. Everyone has a battle of their own. Respect the fighter. We also go to our own battlefields.
