Girls on the Gulf Road

Posted by Mark

I take the Gulf Road all the time and when you’re on it as much as I am you get to witness a lot of weird things (guy sitting on a Porsche for example). The other night while heading home from the gym I saw a Camaro on the Gulf Road with a girl sitting outside the car dancing as the car was speeding down the road. You just need to be a girl driving on the Gulf Road to attract the attention of the guys who cruise up and down the road endlessly for a living so you can imagine the attention she was getting.

But something unexpected happen, we stopped at traffic and the Mustang pictured above pulled up to the Camaro and I was thinking this guy is obviously going to hit on her like crazy, but instead the guy ended up telling the girl off. I guess he must have embarrassed her because she stopped dancing and actually ended up going back inside and sitting down. I managed to capture the photo above as she was going back in and as the guy in the Mustang was about to drive off. Goes to show not every guy in a Mustang on the Gulf Road is a jerk.

Car reverses over another car

I don’t know the full story here but it looks like an old man in a Drivers Ed car reversed over another car at the driving test facility. Awkward. [YouTube]

Rally Fighters going to be built in Kuwait?

Posted by Mark

Local Motors, the American company behind the Rally Fighter car uploaded a new video yesterday in which he mentions briefly that they are opening an exclusive dealership in Kuwait as well as a factory where they will put these cars together. If that does happen I think it would be pretty cool since a local factory in Kuwait could then easily supply the other Gulf countries with Rally Fighters. [YouTube]

A reader sent me these pictures of a burnt Ferrari 360 he found on the 40th. Doesn’t look like it was involved in an accident. So sad.

New point to point cameras going live February 1st

Posted by Mark

speedtrapsactive

The new point to point cameras that are installed on Highway 40 on the road to Saudi Arabia and the chalets (pictured below) are going to be activated on February 1st. The cameras are located in a number of different locations along the long stretch of highway and work by calculating your average speed from one camera to the other. If your average speed is higher than the speed limit you will get issued a ticket and there’s no way to escape these cameras.

Bizarre and horrific accident on the First Ring Road

Posted by Mark

accident

I just passed the scene above awhile ago on my way home on the First Ring Road. From my position it looked like a nasty accident but I just saw the video below and the accident turned out to be a lot more horrific than I first imagined. This took place during rush hour which means there was heavy traffic. How can such a terrible accident occur during rush hour? It’s insane, it doesn’t make any sense.

The Kuwait Motor Show 2014

The Kuwait Motor Show starts from today at 360 Mall and has over 70 vehicles on display. This will probably be the largest car show this year since I don’t see any automotive event on the Kuwait International Fair events page. [Link]

Jamal Abdulnasser Road Development Project

Posted by Mark

The 3D animation video above is of the Jamal Abdulnasser road development project. The Jamal Abdulnasser road is the one that starts from the Sheraton roundabout and heads towards Shuwaikh and all the way to the north. The road has been under construction for sometime now already but the video starts off with the original old road and then takes you through the various stages of construction that the road is and will be going through. Helpful if you take the road often and are frustrated with the slow progress, at least after watching this video you’ll have a better idea of what exactly is going on there. [Vimeo]

Just another ATV

atv

It frustrates me when I hear stories of cops impounding cars because of a small stickers on the rear window but then I see scenes like the one above where a cop completely ignored a much more dangerous situation. The ATV above obviously isn’t street legal hence the lack of a license plate or any indicator lights but if that wasn’t enough the rider was texting on his phone when the cop just drove past him like nothing was wrong.
