Well Kipp hopes RTA gets the memo because last year it ran what Kipp admits is a very creative campaign that involved fake sunny-side up eggs placed on thousands of car hoods across Dubai as part of a campaign to encourage car owners to use the Dubai Metro.

The small lettering on the egg white read: “It’s a cool 20°C on the Metro”.

After measuring his environmental footprint 18 months ago he went one step further and now walks and takes the Dubai Metro.
