Middle Eastern madness is a good thing

I recently came back from Amman, the capital of Jordan and I must say, the style of driving over there in the Middle East is somewhat shocking to say the least. Cutting into lanes which have virtually no lane markings, hard emergency braking and even burnouts on the roads which are worn till they actually 'shine' like the road does on a rainy day.

As a passenger, it was rather exciting though to see all this compared to 'civilized Singapore' judging from the fact that a huge accident had just taken place on the highway and a wrecked Jag greeted me as I took a bus from the airport to the hotel. But what about Dubai? The land of exotic cars that we will never have to chance to see here in Singapore like the Veyron (though there are rumours that one exists here) or the Mclaren F1.. you'd expect those cars to be tearing down the highways. But no. Check this video out and have a taste of what Middle Eastern madness is all about..

I stay and work in Dubai.
Dricing conditions versus 2 years ago have improved due to many speed cameras setup
There are so many natinalities here hence the driving standards here is somewhat messed up
This video caused a stir here but drivers have been arrested as I understand from the local papers
Of course there are some sympathisers who said these guys are having some fun only and have great driving skills; to that I say > fark you, if you want to kill yourself, do it alone and drive off a cliff and not on public roads. imbeciles
