Maktoum Toll Gate - Day 1

Had to go from Murraqabat to Festival City. Got stuck in a huge traffic jam at the Dnata/City Centre interchange due to people avoiding Salik and using the alternative route.

On the way back from Bur Dubai, decided to use the Maktoum toll gate. Just like any other non Salik day got stuck in the traffic jam headed towards the right tunnel headed to Muraqqabat. So I wasted AED4 to get stuck in a traffic jam.

Yes I know it's the first day and stuff but I can already see what a big mess this is going to create for people living just off Maktoum bridge on the Deira side. Way to go RTA!!!!

I don't live or work anywhere NEAR Salik (although I do have a Salik sticker -- I pay my taxes). Unfortunately, the Salik dodgers are affecting me now, as they think my neighborhood is some kind of shortcut on the Dubai/Sharjah Road!

Just when you think you've moved far enough out of town to make this place bearable again, something like Salik happens.
