• It is illegal to drive over the paved shoulder. 
• It is also illegal to speak on a mobile phone while driving; get a “hands free” accessory for your phone. 
• It is against the law to turn right on a red light. 
• There are many roundabouts in the UAE. Try to stay on the inside lane when turning left and always signal.

• Watch out for speed bumps. They are usually indicated in yellow and can be quite high.
