It may well prove to be an expensive lapse in concentration.

A pile-up of four luxury cars at the weekend resulted in damage to a Porsche, two Mercedes and a top-of-the-range Bentley.

The incident happened on Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard in Dubai on Friday night and is thought to have been caused by careless driving.

The Porsche crashed into a parked Mercedes which was then shunted forward into the Bentley and another Mercedes, according to the Arabic language newspaper Emarat Al Youm. It is not known if anyone was injured in the accident.

In the UAE last year, 59 people died and 495 others were injured in 438 traffic accidents that were caused by distracted drivers.
