Another vehicle fire death

Last week I was asking why there were so many vehicle fires in crashes here.

Yet another one was reported on Emirates Road near Arabian Ranches during the Eid holiday. Two cars collided, one burst into flames and the driver died.

There are high speed crashes in other countries but they have nowhere near the number of fires that we have. So it surely has to be a safety thing doesn't it? Are the vehicles we get here less fire-safe? What are the regulations regarding fuel tank positioning and protection, for example. Are they less than in other countries?
