Yes, that’s $45,000 worth of traffic tickets in just three hours. It was in a rented Lamborghini, and it happened in Dubai.
I don’t know if you’ve ever driven a Lamborghini, but neither have I. However, I do hear that it’s very easy to speed in one, and this guy certainly found that out. But at the point of $45k worth of violations, I’m curious if he did it on purpose. Long story short, the guy was caught many times, doing about 150mph at the highest. In Dubai, they have speed cameras. Like red light cameras, but they go off if you’re going too fast. He was apparently caught 33 times by different speed cameras. Oops.
But here’s the deal in Dubai – there is a law about rental cars. In Dubai, when someone in a rental car gets a ticket, the ticket is the responsibility of the rental car company. That means the guy who got all those fines doesn’t have to pay, at least according to the law. We’re sure the company will try to get the money out of the driver, though I’m curious if they’ll actually be able to. He can’t leave the country either as the rental agency is holding his passport trying to get him to pay. Anyway, it’s pay the fine, or the car gets impounded. The rental company doesn’t want either of those things to happen, so it’s a difficult situation.
