Road carnage in the UAE

We've had several days of thick fog in the UAE. Whenever there are difficult driving conditions be it sandstorms, the Great Flood of 2008 or as yesterday thick fog, on the roads nothing changes. The guys who drive at 180kph don't take into account the road conditions or lack of visibility, their idea of defensive driving is to still drive at 180, but with their hazard lights on. This huge smash yesterday morning on the road between Dubai and Abu Dhabi is the result:

Last reports were that 8 people have been killed, over 200 injured and 30 cars torched.
