    I never mentioned we encouraged him to drive that fast... I wanted to get out and walk more than once.. Lets not turn this around to be my fault. we told him enough to Slowwwwwwwwwwwwww down.
    This was a very wrong thing to do with 5 people in a car.

    Oh, nonono, I didn't mean it was wrong in the least, if you are referring to my post, Tom. It's a whole other culture out there and the fact that they drive like they do.....is just interesting! I didn't mean to insinuate you were doing anything wrong by any means.

    I just remember my father driving over there and having to dodge and keep his wits about him. Intersections were always interesting... I don't remember lines playing any part in how cars lined up...

    Lines, what lines? that is very true about over there like turning left from the right side of the road.. Not where I would want to drive.

    I was glad the trip turned out better that what my thoughts were starting out.

    Good to see you back..

    Middle easter countries arent surprising. When I was in Dubai for a visit, it was not uncommon to see tahoes and burbans zipping along.. Same with firbirds, lambos, porches... and stuff...Gas is uber cheap there.

    I would go with the 2008 version, but it has not been released yet.

    I cite from pages 96 and 97 :

    [media]http://www.gtz.de/de/dokumente/en-international-fuelprices-part1-2007.pdf[/media]


    Saudi Arabia - 16c/l
    Kuwait - 22c/l
    UAE - 35c/l
    Egypt - 30c/l
    USA - 63c/l
    Canada - 84c/l

    Im sure a few of the importing countries are paying a high rate for gas, but from what I see, most aint even sweating.

    When I was in dubai, I rented a Chevy Tahoe, and it cost me around $25 bucks Canadian to fill it up from empty, including a car wash.

    The Drivers there could put some of the Nascar fellas to shame. Normal driving NOT. we sometimes hit 170 KPH (105 mph) normal driving was around 120 KPH. mostly 160 KPH (100 Mph).

    They drive sometimes 7 cars wide in 3 lanes through intersections, and Left turn from the right side of the road is perfected.. Yep its an adventure.
    so thats why the cabbies drive like they do?
