First car accident

Had my first car accident in the UAE. The gentleman driving behind me was 'checking emails' on his blackberry while driving at 70kms (approx 43 miles). The speed limit on this stretch of road is 100km (62 miles)

Here is him just after he hit us (don't think he braked at all):

...and here is me:


On the positive side, AD Police and Saaed were very professional and courteous to deal with.
Moral of the story? Do not use your mobile phone while driving, specially not for checking emails.
