Briton racks up 36k of fines in 4hrs during supercar ride

A British tourist in Dubai sped his way to £36K in speeding fines during a rental supercar joy ride – in the space of 4 hours!

The speedster rented a Lamborghini Huracán and was caught driving at speeds up to 230km/h, breaking the law 33 times at an average of 8 speeding tickets an hour.

The unnamed Brit visitor, 25, activated every speed camera on one of the city’s busiest highways on Tuesday 31st July.

The National newspaper of Dubai reports Dubai Police records revealed he sped between 126km/h and 230km/h, activating cameras as he sped past.

The total cost of the fines came to 175,000 dirhams (£36,000).

The owners of the dealership from where the man hired the £370,000 luxury supercar said they are shocked by the ticketing spree.

They said they have not claimed the car back from authorities as they may be liable to pay the fines as the car has yet to be returned to them although they currently still hold the man’s passport.

The dealership told newspaper, The National, of Dubai, "We can't pay this amount should the car be taken into impound, it's still with the tourist, parked at his hotel... and I won't be trying to take it back." 

"Then who pays the money for the impounding? We shouldn't do so for sure, it's his fault and he should pay that amount," they added.
The car’s registered owner was fined because the driver was a tourist.

Hiring a supercar and breaking the law is almost a certainty

We understand this is an isolated incident.

Hiring a supercar and breaking the law is almost a certainty.

You are going to get many motorists who hire the cars and put their foot down to feel the power. But to break the law 33 times in 4 hours is disgraceful. 

The tourist could be free to leave the United Arab Emirates, and despite his lack of a passport which the dealer holds currently, the dealership will have fears the motorist could falsely claim he has lost his passport and apply for a replacement.
