Saudi Arabia makes public road drifting a criminal offense

Drifting is a very entertaining way to let a vehicle unfurl its capabilities, and can be fun to both watch and try out.

But while doing it in a controlled environment (like a track), there are a few out there that just must show off on public roads.

In Saudi Arabia this is a problem for quite some time, and finally the government decided to make the punishment a bit more severe. Now a criminal offense, anyone caught drifting on public roads will suffer ever increasing punishments for each time they do it (and get caught).

For a first time offender, the new law implies a fine of $2.700 and confiscation of the vehicle for the period of one month. Second time offenders will lose their car for 3 months, pay double the money and spend up to a year incarcerated. If that is not enough for you and get caught yet again, this time you will spend 1 to 5 years in jail and pay the money double over.

This new law also extends toward those who participate to these kind of activities as passengers or spectators. They will be required to hand over $400 or their car for a period of 15 days.
