Run Light, Get Impounded: UAE Camera-Seizure Law

Dubai cops have a new weapon against scofflaws: If you're busted for red-light running by a camera, you not only pay a fine, but lose your car for a week (the Arabian tow yards must be pooping themselves with glee). Do it again? Lose it for two weeks. And on the third offense? You guessed it, three weeks in the pokey. Last month alone, the Emirates made $567,936 from speed cameras. We think they should impound that atrocious Accord from yesterday.
