So now people in dubai walking on the footpaths will be looking out for these trash cans to intentionally pour their coke into. thereby helping their fellow motorists.

Does this mean that the car will be impounded for ever or will be returned after a long period of time??

I guess it means the car would be impounded for ever.
Probability of it being auctioned off later cant be ruled out here.

Lost a colleague in a bike crash this morning - I passed the site of the accident and saw a totally shattered bike with its fork hanging out of the window of a mini-bus. He was on his way to work too, on his Gixxer.

Meanwhile some pictures of a crashed Ferrari from the Arab Run held last week:

I did spot a few dummy cameras in dubai and a lots of dummy speed cams in abu dhabi (i pointed a radar detector at them and it went off on only a few occasions)

Yes there could be dummies and there are the types who does not care. I have a friend who owns a merc AMG and when ever he is there he has to put up with 8 - 10K Dhs fine.

One question: How's the accident secnario there???

Accidents in KSA are less compared to kerala, I feel but the ones are real bad and mainly at very high speeds (200kmph +).

Acc in Kerala is the worst I feel cause of the eccentric traffic sense displayed by people on the highways. It feels like everybody is out of the house on wheels cycle to a trailer just to overtake every other thing on the road. CrAZy is not the word.
