Pretty obvious that in each of the cars that seems to be a blazing inferno, the driver and any passengers will have perished. No way they could get out alive from that. Not enough time, I should have thought.

Sorry to be so blunt.

have to agree that it is all very horrific, however i can assure you that it hasnt made a slightest difference to how people drive here, i was on the same bit of road on wednesday and people where driving like complete utter prats, i got so sick of the road idiots i had my car fitted with asshole seeking missiles, they dont work as there are too many targets for them to home in on and they get confused.
i have driven in so many countries around the world but this place takes the cake believe me.
the accelerator should only work as fast as the brain thinks then most of the drivers in the UAE would be back on donkeys
unfortunatly i have to do it all again in about 2 hours time when i go from Dubai to Raha beach.
take care
Peter
