An Arab man driving a Mercedes at 190 kph in Saudi Arabia got a shock when he could no longer control the brakes because of a malfunction.

2The man was on a motorway between the Western towns of Makkah and Medina when the brakes of his 1991 model Mercedes stopped working.

“He called the police, who sent many vehicles to escort his car along the motorway. Eventually they managed to stop the Mercedes by letting it bang into a police car from behind,” Sada daily said. More info
