Do these young men have to take responsibility for killing someone due to their reckless disregard and negligence? As if! It seems they're old enough to have the fast cars and drive them recklessly but apparently not old enough to take the consequences of their actions. So, what’s the punishment?
- 3 months in jail. This is the same sentence given to the ‘sex on the beach’ couple. Strange, I would have thought that killing someone was a more serious crime but there you go...;
- A 500 dirham fine each. 500 dirhams converts to the grand sum of $147;
- Between them they have to pay 200,000 dirhams in blood money to the family of the dead driver. 200,000 dirhams converts to $59,111;
- They are both banned from driving for 1 year (yeah right).
Meanwhile the RTA continues to tell Dubai motorists that they are targeting dangerous driving, but what’s the real message that some drivers are getting? The message is that they can do what they like because they’ll get away with it.
