Finding the Way in the UAE

A Gulf News article contains interviews with residents and visitors to the UAE who say that it is very difficult finding your way to cities and within cities.

There are a lack of maps, an inadequate naming of streets, an absence of street numbers and not a Zip (area) Code to be found.

Add to this the challenge of new roads being constructed every month.

Signage needs to be updated for the modern day Emirates.
