    People are aware of this and do not cross roads like jay walkers. Especially on highways. You cannot cross 10 lane highway with cars coming at + 120 kms speed. But some Asians try their luck n end up in their final destination. People obey rules here. The drivers stop cars when they see a pedestrian n Pedestrians don't just walked on crossing unless road is clear. Srilankans will never obey rules of the country.

    For my experience i have been in UAE for couple of days.. Crossing the roads without crossing lines are more like suicide. Not like in sri lanka where you can cross from everywhere

    First can we all feel sorry for 03 human being slosing their lifeeeees at such a young age ? they are someones children - and U.A.E.is a great country which looks after the people working or on holiday - Their leaders and excellent and so is their legal system. It is a civilised place unlike many of their immediate neighbours

    Women are respected in Dubai, unlike BS Saudi Arabia.

    Taqqiya Tuesday, 07 August 2012 03:52 AM

    Why were they driving without their male keeper? This is a mockery of sensible islamic laws.

    fathima Tuesday, 07 August 2012 03:26 AM

    May they rest in peace!

    Will the employers compensate the maid's family? In the case of teenager Rizana even though the child's death was caused accidently they still insisted on the death penalty.

    Please give priority to the Lankan maid as she is the subject matter of this news. Alteast anyone who knows her will get the information.
