Traffic In Dubai - Crazy!

Sat May 22, 2010 11:16 pm

Check out the video...its absolutely nuts! Does stuff like this really happen in Dubai? Or is it just a random occurrence? And the funny thing is.. there are cops on that road..and they're also cruising along! If something like that ever happened here..the cops would be all over the place! Amazing skills though...esp the two-wheeled driving!

Ahhhhh...thats nothing. Looks like the driving habits of many-a local rednecks in their 4x4 Dulleys tooling down I-45 here in Houston on a Saturday night.

And way too long apparently....

Here's what happens when that 'suicide drifting' craze goes wrong... and I assume it does more often than not.

Well, I am a Jeep man, so I am not too familiar with them but those 4x4 Dulleys have 4x tires on the rear (2 on each axel), rednecks love these monsters.

This is my all-time favourite video. I don't know where it's taken, but presumably the Middle East. A very laid back motorcyclist!

India or Pakistan maybe? I don’t know the number plates but I cannot see any Arabic numbers.

How do they get the car on 2 wheels like that? Why doesn't it just flip over?

Someone explain this to me before I have to return my car to enterprise.
