Do you remember the Sheikh Zayed Road antics of a couple of brain dead drivers?
What was their punishment? Hold onto your hats! They've been fined the grand total of 1,000 dirhams each by the Dubai Court of Misdemeanours. That's $321 Aussie dollars! No black points. And while they get off with nothing more than a slap on the hand with limp celery, stories are coming to light of motorists who have received fines and/or lost black point for incidents that have not taken place. For example, a man fined for speeding at 3am in Sharjah when he was asleep in Dubai, another story of a friend who has received a fine for speeding on Beach Road. At the time of the 'offence' she was at work and her car was in a secure parking area all day. The RTA have told her to pay up.
