We're On A Road To Nowhere - #5

This is a shot of Dubai's main thoroughfare - the Sheikh Zayed Road.

The SZR has been claimed to be the worlds most dangerous road (however in reality the most dangerous road appears to be in Bolivia) although the UAE has been officially named as having the world's third highest traffic fatality statistics, behind only Oman and Saudi Arabia.

Please excuse the dodgy photo composition and framing as this was taken this morning by myself as I was driving by myself on allegedly the worlds most dangerous road...

Having said that - it is usually a parking lot in rush hours so to be able drive at more than 20 km/h is a pleasure...!

SZR was empty because we were all stuck back on Garhoud! Like the pix. May i suggest Sonnapur, the crane fields of burj Dubai/Marina, the skyline at dusk from around Nad Al Sheba and the dark satanic millls of DUBAL/JA Port as potentials? Plus of course jeeps burried up to their axles...
