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

EDITOR’S LETTER


There is an increasing number of automakers producing more eco-friendly concept cars as the world is more aware of the dangers of pollution to the environment. The high price of gas these days may also contribute to consumers looking for other alternatives although it would probably take a few decades before you see the streets flooded with vehicles that run on solar, electric or hydrogen energy.

In the UAE, however, motorists may not be too eager to do the switch yet since gasoline prices are still considerably cheap. With almost 30% increase in the number of vehicles on the roads here each year, pollution is on the rise. Until the Metro and public transport systems are in full operation servicing most locations, everyone is dependent on cars for mobility.

While we patiently await the Metro, we must do our part to help. The Dubai Road Transport Authority (RTA) is certainly doing its part by using buses that is equipped with a technology that “cleans” exhaust gases (Story on pg 44). Consumers can opt for cars with efficient fuel consumption and walk if the distance is short. Some of my friends have also bought bicycles.

During the weekends, I usually chill at home or at a neighbour's. That way I won't need to drive the car out and pollute the air further. Five days a week of driving is certainly enough for me.
