Sometimes I feel like a bit of a crotchety old man when I refuse to drive to certain parts of town because of the traffic. Then I see articles like this with the photo below and my phobia of driving to the heart of Abu Dhabi is only confirmed. Granted, one of the streets in question, Salam Street, is under major construction. Still, when a mere seven-car accident can shut down a whole section of the city for over an hour, I sure am glad that I live on the other side of town. In fact, I hate it so much that I will drive twice the distance to go around that part of town and still end up getting there faster than if I drove through it.
