DUBAI – Police have arrested two Emirati teenagers who were caught on video stunt driving in Al Ain, with one of the vehicles later involved in an accident.
Brigadier Mohammed Dhahi Al Humairi, director of the Traffic and Patrols Directorate at the Central Operations Division of Abu Dhabi Police, said the incident took place during the recent rains in the emirate.
“A video of the dangerous stunts was posted on social media, which showed two vehicles driving on a road in a dangerous manner,” Al Humairi said.
The police officer said one of the vehicles did not have a license plate and was involved in an accident with the other car during the stunt drive.
Al Humairi said that legal action will be taken against the Emirati teens for reckless driving, which is among the major causes of fatal crashes in the UAE.
Under the UAE Federal Traffic Law, reckless driving is punishable with a fine of Dh2,000 and 23 black points on the driver’s traffic file. The vehicle will also be impounded for 60 days. ICA/Expat Media
