The UAE’s new superhero!


You often see labourers standing in the middle of the road, waving flags around, warning you that there’s some construction work going on. Sadly, they usually stand right in front of whatever it is they are supposed to be alerting you to, effectively giving no warning whatsoever and leaving you to swerve out of the way at the last minute.
In Dubai these human traffic cones have recently had a major upgrade – their small red flags have been replaced by battery powered LED torches. Very swish.
I’m not sure if this sign, spotted in Abu Dhabi, is an upgrade – is it warning you that there is a flagman, or is it playing the role of a flagman? Or is there a new, flag-waving superhero nearby, ready to swoop down and stop cars from driving into the latest freshly dug ditch?
