A common question from people when they learn we've relocated to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia is if we are worried about terrorism. "No," we reply, "we're much more worried about being in a traffic accident." Saudi Arabia is the world's leader in traffic fatalities per capita, with roughly 19 per day. Part of the reason for this is the lack of, as we've seen it termed in the local newspaper, "lane discipline." There are also wonderful manuevers like the one illustrated below, for which there are now cameras in place to try and catch (click to enlarge).
I tell people about this little manuever all the time. We see this at least once a week on our drive into work, typically at the intersection of King Fahd Road and Oroba Street. However, I do believe I noticed a new camera installed there today, so perhaps we'll be spared in the future.
Now, if they could only do something about people turning left from the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th lane over....
