Dubai Driving Guide

When driving on the highways, drivers should keep their eyes open for the United Arab Emirates’ somewhat unique road hazards, including camels and goats. Similar to deer and other wildlife in the United States, goats and camels will often wander onto the more remote roads in the UAE. They are not daily visitors, but they do make frequent appearances, so it pays to be cautious especially on empty roads.
