The Emirates Red Crescent told us after the first earthquake that clothes could be delivered to Carrefour. When I went to Carrefour Mirdif, no one knew about this and they told me after 30 min that they could only accept money!
I was left there with my donation and put it in the normal container in the Mirdif car park not knowing where it will go to.

Who would want to get black points and face harsh penalties if they were aware of such rules. There should be a traffic week campaign held before imposing such stringent rules and drivers made aware of the consequences and risk involved in hard shoulder driving.
