Dubai City Walk stunt driver to clean streets
The young motorist who performed dangerous stunts with his vehicle on a wet road in Dubai's City Walk during rain and damaged property will be cleaning Dubai roads for four hours per day for a month as community service. His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, ordered the 17-year-old Emirati driver to clean Dubai streets as punishment for his reckless behaviour.
The Dubai Media Office tweeted, “The driver and his companions who were with him in the car during the stunt will perform the community service because of the damage caused by them. The stunt was done amidst busy traffic in the presence of families and children violating traffic laws and general road etiquette. The reckless behaviour endangered the safety of people and property in the location.” Shaikh Mohammad’s order came after Dubai Police arrested the youngster who was performing ‘doughnut’ stunts near shops and restaurants in City Walk on February 17.
