Just another 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.

Posted by Mark

The decision to change the speed limits on the highways has now been reversed after an outcry from the public and politicians.

First accident at the SIRBB Circuit

Over the weekend the SIRBB race track in Shuwaikh claimed its first victim, a Ferrari California. Looks like traction control was turned off and the driver lost control of the vehicle. I love how the driver stayed calm after the crash, if it was me I would have dropped a few dozen F-bombs. [YouTube]
