Auto Trader News - The Number One place for the Ultimate Petrolhead Fix

EDITOR’S LETTER


The UAE - particularly Dubai and Sharjah - is well known for its traffic, amongst other things. Just when you think it can't get any worse, Dubai presents you with what I'm sure was the worse traffic jam in the history of the UAE. On the day US President George Bush was here, I had the misfortune to be stuck, alongside hundreds of other cars in the few roads that were opened to traffic.

The several road closures caused mayhem like you wouldn't believe. Even though it was declared a holiday, you'd still find loads of cars sprawling the streets and if it wasn't for a medical emergency, I'd have been happy to stay home on a cool, wet day. Instead I had to endure four hours on the road doing 100 metres in 40 minutes. Whatever you think of George Bush he certainly made his presence felt that day.

In situations like these, what's most important in a car is not horsepower but comfort. Specifically, comfortable seating, good air-conditioning and top notch entertainment system. In addition, close proximity sensors would be very helpful, too, since I found myself closely sandwiched in between cars trying to inch their way forward at every chance (or space) they got.

So just a gentle reminder: if you're looking to buy your next car, find out what sort of interior car manufacturers offer; not just how fast it can run!
