I’m loving the emptiness of Gulf Rd, it really makes you appreciate how long and beautiful it is.

Silly Ad

Don’t Al-Bisher 7 Al-Kazemi realize that traffic is a very big stressful hassle to most drivers, especially during morning and end of work rush hours? It’s no fun at all driving during these stressful times.

Maybe if they had placed the ad sometime later, not a couple of days into the new school year; people would’ve gotten used to the bad traffic jams an won’t mind the ad so much.

The future of buses

This is the future of buses.

China has come up with this futuristic concept for over coming the traffic problem in its major cities. The bus will have a speed of 60 km\hr and will carry 1200-1400 passengers. Cars with heights of less than 2 meters (i.e. like most parking lot height restrictions) will be able to pass from underneath the buses’ midsections.

The buses are going to be powered by a mix of electricity and solar powers, and so are environmentally friendly.
