24 vehicles seized in Dubai, drivers fined for dangerous stunts

Dubai Police have impounded 19 cars and 5 bikes after motorists were caught performing dangerous stunts in Al Ruwayyah during the rains.

Apart from impoundment penalty of AED 50,000, an additional AED 2,000 fine, 23 black points and 60-day impoundment await the offenders.

Major General Saif Muhair Al Mazroui, Director of the General Department of Traffic at Dubai Police, said despite repeated warnings to follow traffic rules during unstable weather conditions, some motorists continue to "indulge in chaotic and reckless behaviour".

He added that violations included reckless stunts that endangered the lives of others, sticking head out of the vehicle and carrying out illegal modifications to make cars louder.
