A horrific accident happened last Tuesday in the Dubai-Abu Dhabi highway caused by fog and clear reckless driving left hundreds injured and 8 people dead. Of the hundred vehicle pile up, 25 vehicles caught fire.

Police officers say that the crash happened because the vehicles were still speeding despite the severe weather conditions where thick fog reduced visibility to 15 meters. Driving at more than 60 kmh when you can’t see a thing 15 meters ahead of you is just simply road arrogance and suicide. I pray for those who perished and hope for fast recovery of those injured.
More than anything else, I fervently hope that UAE drivers reach a maturity level so accidents like this can be prevented.
Thanks to all who emailed me to ask if me and my family was ok. Thank God we are. The accident area is far from our place and my route for work. However, my husband and I have decided to delay getting out of the house in the morning during foggy weather.
