According to, Dubai drivers are used to leaving their vehicles with their engines running while hitting the shops, which has led to a hefty increase in thefts of these cars. To be more specific, at least 10 percent of thefts involve such situations.

From now on, drivers who do this face a fine of 300 Emirati Dirhams ($81 at the current exchange rate). In addition to that, the police is advising drivers to lock their doors when leaving the vehicle.

Our say: forget the new Grand Theft Auto V, just go to Dubai.
