Huracan Driver Racks Up $45,000 In Speeding Fines On Holiday

The tourist reportedly rented a Lamborghini Huracan, then broke the speed limit on one of the city's busiest roads several times between 2:30 AM and 6 AM of last Tuesday.

The fines have still not been paid...


'They came to his hotel and demanded he hand it over after the speeding ticket came through, and out of fear he gave it to them.

Bosses at the dealership that owns the Lamborghini Huracán claim Farah, of Pill, Newport, left his passport as a guarantee.

'He was supposed to be there for five days and fly back next week but now he is stuck in his hotel room, he's had to extend his stay'.

Hashi is said to have triggered every speed camera on the Sheikh Hashid road reaching a top speed of about 143mph. Police can impound the vehicle if we cannot pay the amount of fines. I don't know how they can legally withhold his passport.

That's because previous track record shows them they will end up paying the fines if they collect the auto, because the law holds the leasing company accountable, instead of the driver who committed the crime in the first place.

The auto is now still parked outside FIVE Palm Jumeirah, the address given by the tourist when he rented the vehicle. Twelve of the fines were imposed for exceeding 124mph and were seconds apart.

A Lamborghini, similar to the one Hashi was driving. I will not try to take the vehicle back because then who pays the money for the impoundment?

He said they were ignored and Hashi continued to speed along the road triggering roadside cameras that took a photo of the number plate. The dealer requested a travel ban on the tourist but it was rejected. Iqbal's concerns are valid, as tourists are allowed to leave UAE even after having traffic fines worth thousands of dirhams, as the charges are set in the name of the owner.

Hashi was unavailable for comment.
