Not long after 9/11, I deployed to Egypt for a month. It sucked; there was nothing but sand. When it finally came time for us to leave, an Arab drove our bus to the airfield. Along the way he plowed headlong into a crowded square, honking and narrowly missing pedestrians and donkeys. On the highway, going about 50 miles an hour, he pulled within inches of another car in order to bum a smoke from a fellow motorist.
Which is to say — at the risk of making cultural stereotypes — Arabs don't have quite the same traffic safety standards as Americans.
