The road to erudition?

After only managing to create a village for Knowledge, Dubai is creating an entire City for Academia.

But so far it appears to be nothing but a large road system, containing an impressive eleven roundabouts, two interchanges, and "several service roads". Perhaps prayers have been answered and the entire City is intended to teach Dubai residents how not to drive so appallingly? An entire Campus to instruct the black-window brigade to leave more than two inches between the car in front when tailgating. Physiotherapy classes to help Nissan Sunnymen extend their foot on the accelerator to exceed 60kmph. Sociology lectures on the alien concept of driving courtesy.

Required course reading: Dubai's new Traffic Calming Manual, surely set to rival Harry Potter 5 for advance pre-orders.
