Ajman traffic department has come up with an innovative way to mark the Year of Zayed – embedding the Founding Father's image in lights at pedestrian crossings.

Road users across the emirate can now see a picture of the late ruler each time a green signal is displayed at traffic junctions.

One cyclist told The National: “It’s a really fun idea and lots of people are talking about it.

“It’s another creative way of marking the 100 years since Sheikh Zayed was born.”
