"We shouldn't do so for sure, it's his fault and he should pay that amount".
According to Mohammed Ibrahim, the founder of the Saeed Ali Rent A vehicle business that owns the Lamborghini: "I'd warned him that there are cameras everywhere in Dubai and he would be liable for all fines, but he wasn't listening to me".
According to U.A.E laws, the owner of the vehicle, not the tourist, may have to pay the fine for speeding ($19,000) as well as additional fees ($27,000), to retrieve the auto from the police impound.
With the driver legally off the hook, for now, the dealer fears he could go to the embassy and claim he lost his passport in order to get home scot-free and avoid paying the colossal fine.
However, the motorists left his passport at the dealership as a guarantee, which could make this problematic. He is now concerned he may face a huge loss because he did not take a deposit from the tourist.
Police records show that he hit speeds of up to 230kph as he flew along Sheikh Zayed Road, the longest thoroughfare in the emirate.

Brad Pitt fires back at Angelina Jolie’s child support claims
According to People , Spiegel called the claims "unnecessary", and "A thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage". Pitt's court filing said it was the actor, not Jolie, who first made the request to speed up the divorce.
He left his passport with the dealership as a guarantee, but the owners told local media that they have not claimed the auto back yet because they may be liable to pay the fines.
And therein lies the standoff: they haven't claimed the auto back yet, because they, as registered owners, might be liable to pay the speeding tickets.
Meanwhile, the Lamborghini is gathering sand and dust parked outside the front of the hotel, little more than a piece of expensive street furniture.
"We can't pay this amount should the auto be taken into the pound", dealership partner Faris Mohammed Iqbal said. I won't be trying to take it back, because once I do, I know I have to surrender it to police. He is also afraid the tourists will leave the country without any sort of payment, leaving him in a terrible predicament. As the National notes, the traffic fines acquired by expatriates are linked with departure counters at airports across the country to stop them from leaving.
