Abu Dhabi Gets Tough: Reckless Driver Jailed, Will Be Deported
One more reason to drive safely on the UAE's roads - not doing so might mean you get deported! An Abu Dhabi court sentenced a man (who belongs to a different Gulf country) to four months in jail and ordered his deportation from the UAE after he was convicted of driving recklessly and endangering lives and public property.
That's not all he was guilty of! The man was also convicted of driving a car without a license. Plus, he refused to heed police orders to stop the vehicle after he was seen driving in the opposite direction on a key road in Abu Dhabi at night. Bad!
The man's Arab friend, who owns the car, was also convicted by the court for allowing the former to drive his vehicle without a license.
