Machines don't cause crashes. People do.
As we unflinchingly approach aircraft like speeds,
aircraft-like crashes, where the wreckage is scattered across a wide area,
are also part of the package!
Only Martin-Baker ejection seats could save the occupants, if that at all !

Gulfnews: Labour bus drivers use roads 'as race tracks'

A report on Gulf News today that found that bus drivers take bets (and exchange money) on who reaches a destination first.

This was prompted by an accident on Shk Zayed Road last week that resulted in a 15 km jam and choked every road in the city for about 3 hours. The passengers complained that the driver had been driving too fast and was competing with another one.

Earlier this year, near our office at the Dubai Marina - Iranian girl rams into a truck while taking an illegal U-turn. She rams it so fast that the truck overturns:
