A man in Sharjah has been arrested for not paying Dhs1.1MILLION in traffic fines
Here's something you don't read about every day.
Gulf News reports that Sharjah Police have referred a driver to Traffic Prosecution for committing a whopping 132 traffic offenses worth Dhs1.1 million!
Major Mohammed Abdul Rahman Bin Kasmol, deputy director of Wasit police station, said that the Asian driver was arrested as he had not paid any of his pending fines.
“Most of the fines were for ‘passengers smuggling’ issued by Roads and Transport Authority in Sharjah. He committed other fines like lane discipline and some fines in other emirates,” Major Bin Kasmol said.
A Sharjah Police patrol caught the driver red-handed, pickingup passengers illegally also known as 'passenger smuggling'. The fine for ‘passenger smuggling’ is Dhs5,000 and doubles to Dhs10,000 for repeat offences.
This guy gives reckless driving a whole new meaning eh?
