    Saudi man sentenced to beheading after reckless driving


    If you happen to be visiting Saudi Arabia, don't drift your rental car, you could lose your head.

    A popular amateur sport in the kingdom, drivers push their cars into skids at high speeds through traffic while spectators gather on the side of the road to watch and cheer, sometimes with disastrous results. Scores and scores of videos of the practice, called “Hadwalah”, are available on Youtube. In the video below, a Honda Accord is seen speeding down a highway with guns blazing out of the windows. The driver later turns around and drifts next to a school bus full of children.

    Saudi police have been cracking down on the practice and are now charging offenders with negligent homicide.

    One man, who calls himself “Mutannish”, Arabic for “he who ignores”, has been sentenced to beheading after killing two people while drifting his car.

    WOW WOW WOW WOW Just proves that no matter what kind of car you have stupid is as stupid does. Amazing what they pushed those Honda's and Toyota's to do as they sure are not designed as drift cars. Makes you wonder what the truckers think of having idiots like this zip around.

    Course if the arabs would give the kids some freedom, they would not end up having problems like this. How stupid is it to be firing a gun as you go zipping along. Hope no one got hurt from the falling bullets.

    I like to keep it on a track period...true story...

    One of the guys I know from the SCCA was running his WRX down a gravel road in Alaska at 115 mph...went off road...took out 36 trees...darn near killed himself.

    Another guy went off track at a track event in an M# BMW...busted a hose clamp...someone gave him a hose clamp..he's still driving and racing that car today.

    Not to be political, but I see big problems coming just because the Arabs don't give their kids freedom.
