Cultures of queuing and Abu Dhabi taxi

I did not post anything here for long time now but I thought to share this thought with you all
My old car broke down again as usual and I had to use the Abu Dhabi taxi
In Abu Dhabi now days you can see a new silver color taxies rooming around the city although there still a shortage of taxis in the city.
And what worsen the situation is the queuing behavior for the passengers, waiting for more than 60 minutes to get a taxi and when you see one from far and feel lucky now that your waiting came to an end suddenly from no where some one jump in front of you and open the taxi door before the taxi even make a full stop,it makes you wonder is it a rude behavior or it is just the different culture, I guess in many cultures people do not queue for things they just jump right to the front of the line .
I would love to see kind of queue handrails in the taxis stop to solve this problem so no one can jump in front of the other or claim he was first in the line.
