Keep your eyes on the road ....

I would if those stupid flashy signs weren't up ! Ahh, you've seen them right ? The new advertising boards that are put up on the light poles all along Sultan Qaboos Highway Road.

I don't mind road advertising, but being a fast-lane driver, I get very exposed, distracted and annoyed by their back lights. If you're gonna put road advertising that divert the drivers attention, then I don't see why a strict 'no-phone-while-driving' policy is implemented. Not only that, but now they block visibility to the radars 'controlling' speed all along the highway, and the I'll-be-damned-before-I-get-a-speeding-ticket-and-so-I'll-hit-the-brakes-madly morons are sure multiplying now. Making money is real nice, but making money through road hazards isn't.


Not the best picture of what I'm talking about

Don't get me wrong, I love our roads. They easily head the quality and cleanliness list in the region, and pretty sure they rank up quite high internationally too. The people in Muscat Municipality are sure busy, there's the new HUGE road that has Al-Khuwair & Qurum all chopped up, it must be coming along beautifully citing the number of trucks on the streets. The works on the airport roundabout, The bridge done for the expansions in city center ... It all asserts that there's going to be a notable optimization in transporting, but will that be enough to catch up with the notable growth in traffic ? Especially considering that the amount of drivers and cars hitting the streets are far more than the drivers and cars getting off of them.

I think it's time that more attention is given to public transportation. The use of buses can and will help a lot if they were utilized correctly. It can be solve a lot of problems, even financially and environmentally if you look at things on a larger scale, but will the big-headed egomongered Omani population give up their pride to take the morning commute on a public-transportation bus ? ... Not anytime soon I say

Wait, I thought I was talking about road advertisements. Ok, I'll shut up now

glol Okay I agree that these signs can sometimes be annoying, it's something that you really feel like looking when noticing that your car is leaving the lane..
For god's sake, it is enough that we look at boobs on people driving around us, now THIS! lol

The ones we look at are mercy in front of the one we 'think' of, and they just as much 'swirve-from-the-lane' power :D

Um Khalid
Speaking of which,is it me or .. is it freaky that Bahja doesn't grow up ?
