Here's what really causes accidents in Kuwait: Speed, lack of law enforcement/fines, people who get their licenses via wastah and not by actually knowing how to drive, lack of drivers training, reckless drivers/repeat offenders who use wastah to get off and are back on the roads, etc.
Then there are those who want to outdo the Al-Jones' and buy their kid a hot car: If you are going to buy your kid a high-speed sports car when he (usually he) is too young (30 and under?) to understand or care that speed kills, it isn't the kid's fault: It is the parents.
Further.... (Just a few, fun Desert Girl pieces of advice)
- It is NOT ok to reverse up an exit ramp.
- It is NOT ok to cut across 3 lanes of traffic "just because"
- It is NOT ok to zig-zag/weave in-and-out of lanes
- It is NOT ok to tailgate: putting your bumper so far up the ass-end of the car in front of you that the other driver can see your tonsils.
- It is NOT ok to talk on the phone (text, look for a Pokemon) with your kid on your lap, smoking a cigarette while driving.
- It is NOT ok to make 4 lanes out of 1 or 2.
Also, if you're a dumbass and don't maintain your car, that's another reason for accidents and break-downs. Tires are important in Kuwait, oil changes, checking the water and cooling system, brake pads... (Your stupid Sworovski crystal rear-view mirror charm is NOT the most important aspect of your car.)
They were blaming foreigners for the high rate of traffic accidents just five minutes ago. Now this from the Arab Times:
