Dubai Police locate boy who took Dad’s car for a spin

The Dubai Police were called to track down a teenage boy after he took his Dad’s car for a drive without a license.

The Arab man got in touch with the police after his 16-year-old son took his car for a drive without asking. Or having a license.

The police immediately sprung into action, sending out a description of the car and the teenage driver. The driver – and a group of his friends – were then spotted in the car at a nearby petrol station.

Dubai Police immediately told the father after which ‘legal measures’ were taken.

We can only imagine what Dad said to his son when he got home, but we can imagine the neighbours heard it! And we’d almost imagine they’d be worse than the legal measures!

“We urge them to monitor and protect their children after they sign pledges not to repeat the violation and advice them to take strict measures if such incidents recur,” Brigadier General Al Malik explained.

We think there’s now one less teenager in Dubai keen to take his Dad’s car for a joy ride.
