Card cancellation fee 10 Dhs? Why would you want to cancel the card? Wouldn't you just stop using it?

Why can't people share cards?

What NEXT??? I shudder to think.

Why on earth would a place as small as Dubai have tolls?

I wont be surprised if they would make more money from law breakers than the normal payers.

Another way to make more money. sigh.

Why on earth would a place as small as Dubai have tolls?

My sentiments exactly.

they are going 2 have tolls, so they can build more malls, more useless apartments that are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay overpriced & more stuff that they really don't need.
does any1 think that the bubble is gonna burst soon? & if so, what happens next,eh?

I wonder of the stickers can be read through 100% tinted windscreens? :-)

CG said...

perhaps those with 100% tint will be exempt.

Perhaps you will get pirates who will issue duplicate cards once they figure out the technology. Remember the fake cable TV cards that flooded the market.

Quick question:

What happens if your car is from another emirate, or say you drive from Oman or KSA and you pass under one of those salik thingies...

How do they charge you?

Dear Bloggers,

I am the Educational Program Director for Children of Abraham, a non-profit, interfaith organization that was founded to encourage dialogue between Muslim and Jewish youth over the internet.

We run a five-month long, on-line interfaith seminar called the Global Discovery Program (GDP) which uses cutting-edge wiki software and digital photography to facilitate Muslim-Jewish dialogue. We select a total of thirty-four Muslim and Jewish students between the ages of sixteen and nineteen from Tehran, Montreal, Damascus, New York, Dubai, Moscow, Jakarta, Paris, Riyadh, London and Marrakech to create a truly international experience for our participants.

We are asking you to post a link to our website on your popular blog. Our developers have made it very simple to do so, just follow the instructions here:


Were are currently recruiting applicants to our Global Discovery Program and the exposure on your website will certainly help get the word out.

Our application is available in many different languages here:


Children of Abraham is not a political pressure group or a focus group for Palestine-Israel relations. We are an interfaith organization which realizes that Muslims and Jews have a long and ancient tradition of respect and peaceful coexistence which has only recently been strained by political factors. We hope to build empathetic relationships among our participants based on time honored Islamic and Jewish religious traditions.

As a show of our commitment to equal representation, Children of Abraham receives financial support from a balance of Muslim and Jewish donors.

I encourage you to explore our state of the art website www.childrenofabraham.org and to contact me personally with any questions or concerns you may have.

Thank you very much for your consideration.

Children of Abraham
