Horrific accident on Abu Dhabi-Dubai highway
A bizzare accident involving 200 cars (yes, that's right... 200 cars!!) took place today morning on the Abu Dhabi - Dubai highway in the United Arab Emirates. So far, number of casualties have been tagged at 6 with 25 cars catching fire. This horrific accident has been attributed to high speed driving under low visibility conditions due to fog.

driving with HAZARD LIGHTS on : but why? driving with hazard lights turned on can be hazardous at times.
people should know when and where to use Hazard lights and they should also know when to use fog lamps / driving with HLs/TLs on.
I am sorry for being rude :(
read the comments posted in the article.

Should be the Worst day in the history of UAE, more than 200 vehicles collided mainly due to heavy fog and some careless drivers who use hazard lights while driving in fog. casualities should be more than mentioned in the news since they are not revealing exactly. May their soul R.I.P
