  1. The regular Dubai Taxis already have cameras installed inside them and now Uber is also adding the same feature in its taxis. Talking about the new safety features in Uber app, Sachin Kansal, Uber's global head of safety product stated that with more than 15 million trips registered on Uber each day, there is nothing more important than ensuring the safety of both the drivers and the riders. He further added that the company has been working since last year to develop products which will improve the user experience and provide peace of mind to everyone. Besides adding cameras, the Uber app will also introduce a shortcut to dial emergency numbers as well as an option to share trip details with trusted contacts with a single tap. More features will be added to improve the overall security standard of both the driver and the rider. Kansal also stated that the addition of these features will not impact the Uber service pricing. Do you appreciate this step taken by Uber? Or do you think this is somehow a breach of privacy for the riders? Do share your opinion with us.
  2. Every taxi in Dubai will soon have free Wi-Fi, thanks to the new deal signed between Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and the telecom operator Du. The deal was finalized at the Gitex Technology Week and aims to improve the experience of commuters using the taxi service. Both the parties showed immense commitment to making Dubai a smart and lively city. RTA has announced that Du will soon begin the installation of Wi-Fi services on the taxis and within a year, all the vehicles will have the Wi-Fi technology. Ahmad Hashem Behroozian, CEO of RTA’s Public Transport Agency stated that adding the Wi-Fi service in the taxi will allow the riders to conveniently browse the internet on their mobile phones and carry out important tasks while traveling. The Wi-Fi service in the taxi will surely be helpful for every Dubai resident. Do share your thoughts with us if you agree.
  3. Do you find it annoying when you have to search the parking lot back and forth for a free parking space? Well RTA has an excellent solution to your problem.

This app will allow you to reserve a parking space in advance at a cost of AED 10 per hour while every additional hour will also cost AED 10. The payment can be done through the debit or credit card. Currently, the app can be used to reserve a parking spot in only two areas including Dubai Marina and Dubai Media City but more areas will be added soon. The app is available on Android devices right now but will soon be launched on iOS-powered devices as well. Do you think this app will be useful for reserving a parking spot in Dubai? Share your thoughts with us.
  4. The Gitex Technology Week starts from 14th October in Dubai and one of the highlights of the show will be the driverless taxis. According to the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), these driverless taxis will run on specific routes at the Dubai Silicon Oasis and feature top-notch security standards. State-of-the-art safety cameras and sensors are installed on the taxis for monitoring the road and traffic condition and to control the vehicle to avoid any collision. These autonomous taxis will be used by the Dubai Metro and tram passengers to help them reach their destination. Along with the driverless taxis, the robot cleaners for metro stations as well as the 3D printed metro spare parts and an AI-powered chatbot will also be displayed at the Gitex. What is your opinion about these automated taxis? Do you think this technology can be trusted for human safety?
  5. The Smart Yard was first launched in February 2018 at Dubai Driving Center, Al Khail branch in order to automate the parking test and reduce the need for RTA examiners. Towards the end of September, six more smart yards were launched and another three will be operational by the end of October. By the end of this year, all 14 RTA test centers will have smart testing yards according to Abdullah Yousef Al Ali, CEO of RTA's Licensing Agency. The Smart Test comprises of a slope test, emergency brake test, parallel parking test, garage parking test, and angle parking test. The test usually completes within 15 minutes and till now more than 6,000 people have taken it. Thanks to the use of high-tech cameras and latest technologies, the automated parking tests ensures fairness in results and determines if the applicant has failed or passed. If you have undertaken the automated parking test, do share your experience with us and provide us with helpful tips as well.
  6. The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced a new rule which states that the electric vehicles in Dubai will now need to be accredited first before they can be registered. The reason for this rule is that RTA wants to ensure the safety of every driver on the road. Abdullah Yousef Al Ali, CEO of RTA's Licensing Agency explained that electric vehicles are equipped with complex electrical and mechanical components which can pose a threat to the users, roads, and pedestrians if not checked properly for quality. He further stated that RTA has alerted all service suppliers, auto agents, and technical testing personnel to not register an electric car in Dubai unless it has been verified by a UAE-based accredited agent. RTA is also conducting training sessions for public awareness and educating the auto agents in the UAE about electric and hybrid vehicle testing standards.
  7. When you visit any shopping mall in Dubai, you must have noticed that it takes a considerable amount of time to find a parking spot and then walking from the parking lot to the inside of the mall. This problem can be fixed with autonomous parking which will not only make things convenient for the driver but also help save over $1 billion. Talking about the parking spaces, Andy Stevenson, Future Mobility Director at Mott MacDonald mentioned that the autonomous vehicles should arrive soon as there would be a need of about 10,000 new parking spaces in Dubai’s new and existing shopping malls. Stevenson further discussed that there should be a balance between the parking space and the time it takes for the visitor to park the car. By introducing drop-offs and autonomous vehicles, the need for additional parking space will be reduced by 40 percent saving around $1 billion (AED 3.65b). Moreover, another research carried out by University of Toronto revealed that since with autonomous car parking the driver exits the car before the car is parked, there is no need for the door to be opened once the car has been parked. This means that more cars can be crammed together to save space. Are you excited for autonomous vehicles? Do you think they are better compared to the regular vehicles present in the market? Do share your opinion with us.
  8. If you love electric cars and you are a customer of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), then you can buy an electric car at a discounted price from the DEWA new online store on the smart app. DEWA collaborated with several public and private companies and launched its online store on the smart app to offer exclusive discount and offers to its valued customers. Moreover, customers can also get insurance deals as well as an option to pay for their purchase in installments. DEWA is conducting deals with different car makers, banks and insurance companies to offer its customers discount on electric cars. Till now, the company has signed an agreement with AW Rostamani Group and Al Ghandi Auto while discussions are underway with BMW and Toyota. Also, DEWA is partnering with banks such as Emirates NBD to provide easy financing plans.
  9. If you haven’t washed your car for a long time and it seems considerably dirty, better get it cleaned quickly or you can get a fine of AED 500. The Dubai Municipality has issued a warning stating that the residents cannot leave their cars dirty or unwashed for a long time as this damages the beauty and appearance of the city. Talking about the issue, Abdul Majeed Abdul Aziz Al Saifaie, director of Dubai Municipality’s waste management department mentioned that the vehicle will first be identified and if it seems dirty enough to spoil the appearance of the city, a warning sticker will be issued to the driver. The driver will have 15 days to clean the vehicle, however, if the owner of the car does not respond, the vehicle will be moved to scrap yard. If the fine is still not paid, the car will be auctioned. It is also important to note that this warning applies to those cars that have been unwashed for months and not the ones that have light dirt. In Abu Dhabi, the municipality gives a three-day warning to the driver and if the car is not cleaned, the owner has to pay a fine of AED 3,000. Do you think this is a good step taken by the Dubai Municipality to improve the aesthetics of the city? Share your thoughts with us and also discuss why is it important to keep the car clean.
  10. Roads and Transport Authority has recently launched its new chatbot that acts as a virtual assistant and is capable of communicating with the users in both Arabic and English Language. The chatbot which is called Mahboub uses the latest artificial intelligence technology to converse with the user via both texts as well as voice. You can request any information related to vehicle registration in Dubai, Metro timing, tram timing, taxi information, parking space availability and a lot more. Mahboub has been designed to answer the queries just as a human representative would. Prior to the conversation, Mahboub will gather important information from the user such as name, mobile number and email address. The users are requested to be specific when asking questions to help Mahboub source the correct information from the RTA database. Such technological innovations are extremely helpful for the UAE residents. If you have already used Mahboub, do share with us your experience regarding how helpful the virtual assistant is.
  11. UAE is planning a new road project called ‘Maliha-Khor Fakkan’ which is expected to complete in the second quarter of 2019 and will significantly reduce the trip time when traveling both inner cities and going out of the city. The Maliha-Khor Fakkan project is a 5.5-kilometer-long road which will link the Sheikh Khalifa Road E84 with Dibba-Khor Fakkan-Kalba E99 road as well as the Sharjah-Maliha E102 road. The project is worth Dh150 million and includes four lanes, two in each direction along with a 360-meter tunnel as well. With the completion of this project, the traveling time is expected to reduce by more than 40 percent. We believe this is an excellent step to improve the traffic condition of the country and would like to hear your opinion as well.
  12. The Smart Car Rental service launched in Dubai in October 2017 initially consisted of 200 vehicles. However, 200 more vehicles have recently been added to the fleet following the increasing demand and the popularity of the service. The Smart Car Rental service allows users with the ‘eKar’ and ‘U Drive’ app to rent a car for up to six hours. The best part about the process is that no human intervention is involved and the users can get their vehicle refueled for free at Eppco and Adnoc service stations. Moreover, users can also avail free parking at designated RTA parking areas. The cost for rental is 50 fils per minute but if the car is returned to its starting point, it costs 40 fils per minute. The Smart Car Rental service is available at 45 different locations in Dubai including Rashidiya, Union, Burjman, Business Bay and Ibn Battuta Metro stations. To avail the service, the user is required to register on two smart apps and must have their Emirates ID, driving license, credit card, and a personal photograph. Visitors are asked to input the details of their passport, entry visa, driving license and credit card details. Share your experience with us if you have also used the Smart Car Rental service and let us know if you would recommend it to others as well.
  13. You can now select any memorable date you want as your car number plate, thanks to the launch of a new phase of ‘Capture Memorable Moments on Your Vehicle’s Plate’ initiative for code W. This initiative allows the drivers in Dubai to select any 5-digit license plate number resembling a memorable event of their life as such the date of birth, marriage date, graduation date, employment date and more. Any 5-digit number between 1967 and 2018 can be chosen and the cost of the plate will be Dh1670. Talking about this new initiative, Jamal Hashim Assada who is the director of RTA’s vehicle licensing agency, mentioned that the citizens can buy customized car number plates from the any Customers Happiness Centre in Dubai, service providers, RTA official website or even the smart app. He further mentioned that such initiatives are introduced to improve customer satisfaction and make them happy. We encourage you to share a picture with us of your customized number plate and share the story behind those 5-digits.
  14. Road accidents are increasing every day in Dubai and this leads to traffic congestion in the whole city. To tackle this problem, RTA and the Dubai Police have collaborated to introduce a new Traffic Incidents Management (TIM) system. The Traffic Incident Management system was launched officially on 16th September 2018 and was inaugurated by key figures of both Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and Dubai Police. Special breakdown vehicles were also seen to be deployed at different locations on the Mohammad Bin Zayed Road. Special breakdown response vehicles will be positioned every 30 kilometers on the national expressway road which is approximately 70 kilometers long and connects Dubai with Abu Dhabi as well as Sharjah. These vehicles will be well equipped with latest technologies and communication devices to clear up the accident site quickly and assist the drivers to a safe place. The TIM system is expected to reduce traffic delays by up to 35 percent by removing the vehicles involved in an accident and restoring the traffic flow ASAP. This effort by RTA and Dubai Police deserves an applaud as it will definitely improve the traffic situation in the city and ensure the safety of every driver. Do share your opinion about this new initiative and tell us how beneficial it will be for UAE drivers.
  15. Official announcement by Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) indicates that the first batch of 50 trains for the Dubai Metro will be arriving in November. These trains have recently been tested at Alstom Company's factory in Poland and will soon arrive in Dubai. 15 out of them will be used for the Dubai Expo 2020 while the remaining will be used by the Dubai Metro Service. The new trains will boast a phenomenal design and improved interior with a carriage reserved especially for women and children, while another carriage for gold class passengers. All remaining carriages will be classified as ‘silver class’. Moreover, the design of the luggage compartment has been revamped as well to allow standing commuters to travel easily. Furthermore, these trains will have digital maps with routes and stations clearly marked. Also, the current metro train carries 643 passengers while the new ones will accommodate up to 696 passengers. The last batch of trains will be delivered by October 2019. The arrival of these new trains is definitely a great news for Dubai residents as it will make traveling to the Dubai Expo 2020 convenient for everyone. What new features do you think will be present on these trains which are not on the current metro trains?
  16. I know there's not much love for Rudolph diesels invention in this part of the world but I guess it's because not many people have been exposed to it. Let's show some love for the Diesel engine. Haters need not apply.
  17. A few months back, Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) suspended the carpooling permit known as ‘Sharekni’ leaving the drivers confused whether or not they can continue with the ride sharing. Now, the UAE police have confirmed that a Dh3,000 fine will be imposed on anyone indulging in carpooling. Besides the Dh3,000 fine, motorists will also receive 24 black points and their vehicle will be confiscated for 30 days if they are found breaking this traffic law. Talking to the media, Brigadier Ibrahim Sultan Al Zaabi, director of the transport security department mentioned that the new regulation regarding banning carpool is introduced to ensure the protection of every citizen. He further mentioned that there are a lot of dangers associated with carpooling such as theft, fraud and sexual harassment which is why it is important to put an end to this practice. The director of Planning and Business Development at RTA’s Public Transport Agency, Mohammad Abu Bakr Al Hashemi stated that there are a number of smart taxis and ride-hailing services available in the region which are safe and should be used by the citizens as opposed to choosing the carpooling option. Although banning carpooling will affect a lot of people, it does have some disadvantages, especially for women. Do share your thoughts if you are one of those who will get affected by this rule.
  18. Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) is best known for introducing new policies and procedures to make the lives of an ordinary Dubai’s citizen convenient. Following the introduction of a new way to pay the fine in installments through the credit card, RTA has now launched an ‘automatic vehicle registration renewal’ service which is totally online. The automatic online vehicle registration renewal service was previously available only for the corporate sector but is now officially accessible to the private individuals as well. The move is a part of the RTA’s grand plan to migrate most of its services to digital platforms. So how do you take advantage of this service? It’s fairly simple! Just visit the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) website and click on the ‘Licensing’ service tab. After that, you can sign up with your personal details including the vehicle’s plate number. It is also important to have the e-wallet service which is absolutely free and allows the motorist to pay for the services online. The e-wallet service can be obtained by signing up on www.nol.ae. You can easily renew your registration 90 days prior to the expiry date and pay online through the e-wallet. A confirmation SMS will be sent and the registration card will be sent via the postal company. Do share your feedback with us regarding how beneficial do you think this service is for the Dubai residents or whether it will create a hassle for those who are not too comfortable using modern digitize methods.

    Sand-Boarding

    Has anyone experienced Sandboarding here in Dubai? Any prefered locations which are easily accessible without breaking any car parts to reach there? Not looking for high dunes but reasonably tall to slide off. Kindly share your experiences and videos/pics etc if any.
  24. @desertdude @Rahimdad @Gaurav Hello again, I browsed around google with no success. The question! what happens on switching to off road gear on road? Let's take the lc100 series as an example, there are 3 off road gears, one for standard road driving, one low and one high. I know the low one shouldn't be used on road because it provides low gear ratio and excessive fuel consumption. What happens on high compared to standard road driving. What if someone started using the high gear for everyday road driving? If you want me to be more specific let me know! Thanks!!
  25. I was browsing the YouTube for off-road videos and came across the following. It occurred to me that the driver is doing something WRONG. So why not use the carnity.com experts to comment on what was wrong in the approach, skill or the vehicle that made it " DOING IT WRONG". I am hoping this thread to be not just limited to this video but as an opportunity we can share at least a video a week to have feedback and experience learning from Carnity stars. Let's see.
