Dubai's Tunnel of Death

After the infamous Russian tunnel video, Dubai's very own Rashidiya tunnel is getting YouTubed for all the wrong reasons.

And hey, this is not part of the "pre-plan-ned media campaign to tarnish the image of the country". Ok?

Cant believe the guy who went in between the two cars as if to pass them.
Is that common in Dubai?

Are you sure about the 'pre-plan-ned media campaign'? I was left almost as speechless by the article as I was by the video!

UAE is up there with Russia in some respects.

Check this one out:

There is something very wrong with this tunnel

There is a river running over it, and water leaks at some points. When the temperature reaches -38 degrees, like it did this winter, the road freezes and the result is the attached video taken during a single day.

The results are quite sad, but the initiative is very refreshing. I wonder who produced these tapes? Dubai Police?

That's why when I drive in Dubai I usually drive defensively, even if that means spending more time looking in the rear-view mirror than looking where I am going.

Actually people who drive defensively following the rules always gets abused besides the non-stop honking. Quite sad.
