DUBAI: A group of men arrested for taking part in dangerous car stunts in Dubai has been ordered to clean the streets for a month.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, the ruler of Dubai, issued the order after a video emerged of a motorist driving in circles at high speed in wet weather.
The driver and his passengers have been ordered to clean the streets for four hours a day for a month, according to the official Dubai Media Office.
“The offenders were charged last week with performing dangerous stunts in their 4x4 vehicles in City Walk in rainy weather,” the office said in a tweet.
“The stunt was made amidst busy traffic in the presence of families and children violating traffic laws and general road etiquette.
“This reckless behavior... endangered the safety of people and property in the location.”
Dubai Police took swift action to arrest the offenders and referred them to the authorities for legal action, the Dubai Media Office said.
