Brit tourist racks up £36,000 in speeding fines on holiday

Brit tourist racks up £36,000 in speeding fines on holiday

The dealership doesn't want to claim it because it would be asked to pay the penalty. We shouldn't do so for sure.

Early morning on July 31, he was caught speeding in the auto by all the radars on Sheikh Zayed Road from 2.30am-6am.

The man's passport is being held by the auto dealership which is refusing to incur the fines.

A European tourist gained Dh170, 000 worth of fines, just three hours after driving his rented supercar in Dubai.

Normally, the fees are charged to the registered owner of the vehicle, which would be Ibrahim, as the driver was a tourist.

A BRITISH tourist in Dubai has had his passport detained, as a result of racking up almost £36,000 in speeding penalty charges in the emirate. He is now concerned he may face a huge loss because he did not take a deposit from the tourist.

Dubai Police records revealed he sped between 126km/h and 230km/h, constantly setting off radars as he drove.

U.S. imposes sanctions on Russia for nerve agent attack in UK
Washington had already expelled dozens of Russian diplomats from the United States over the poisoning. Later on, London claimed that the Novichok-class toxin had been developed in Russian Federation .

Ebrahim said the police can not interfere in cases like these and have advised him to take the matter up to the court to seek compensation.

The dealership owners said they received notifications of offences between 2.31am and 6.26am on July 31, the day after he hired the Lamborghini Huracán and left his passport as a guarantee.

Legal consultants say the auto rental owners can also impose a travel ban on the British man if they file the case in court as expatriates' traffic fines are linked to airport departure counters.

They said they have not claimed the vehicle back from authorities as they may be liable to pay the fines. I won't be trying to take it back, because once I do, I know I have to surrender it to police.

Despite the presence of fines, the tourist has the right by law to leave the country. This can stop them from leaving the country.

"It's been here for nearly a week and people have been asking about it", a valet at the luxury Five hotel on Dubai's Palm Jumeirah island said on Tuesday.

The dealership believe the driver is at fault and needs to pay the impound fines, according to the report.
