I know that a few of my recent posts have been about the crappy driving in Abu Dhabi, but this incident is pretty hard to ignore. My wife came home from dropping our kids off at school around 8:15 this morning and told me that she had to park in the lot across the street because there had been an accident in front of our building. The details are a bit garbled but from what I was able to find out, a woman was trying to pull out of our parking area and someone speeding along the main road plowed into her truck, ricocheted off her, lost control, went over the curb into our parking area, and wiped out into two parked cars. It looked like the cars were parked right where my wife usually parks our SUV. Luckily, as I said earlier, she was away dropping the kids off at school. As far as I could tell, no one was injured, but it was a good example of the fine driving skills that can be found in Abu Dhabi.
