Dubai Police have confirmed that Justin Bieber racked up six speeding fines during his stay in the city, setting off radars down Shaikh Zayed Road as he raced along the highway in a Lamborghini Avendator on Sunday night.

The 19-year-old singing star -- who performed two concerts in Dubai, on Saturday and Sunday, drove the supercar -- worth around Dh1.5million -- to his concert on Sunday and picked up fines on Shaikh Zayed Road and on the way to the Sevens Stadium on the Al Ain Road. The Lamborghini Aventador is the Italian brand’s flagship model and has a top speed of 350kph and 691 horsepower.

Police said that the luxury sports car driven by Bieber was caught by radar cameras several times on Shaikh Zayed road and he was driving recklessly.

The Lamborghini was spotted by police patrols exceeding the road speed limit and police tried to make the driver stop, added a police source, and several radar fines were issued against the Lamborghini.

A typical speeding fine in Dubai is Dh600, meaning Bieber would have to pay at least Dh3,600, although it’s unclear how the fines will be collected. Fines can be higher for higher speeds.

A UAE-based Lamborghini sales agent told Gulf News that it is possible for a driver as young as Bieber to get insured for a Lamborghini. Bieber is known for his collection of fast cars, and owns, among others, a chrome Fisker Karma and a white Ferrari.

Bieber was two hours late for his concert on Sunday, where a fan climbed on stage during the performance. Dubai police criminal and investigation department (CID) said that no one was arrested in that matter.

    Speed limits are kept to reduce accidents.This guy should be penalised more than fine for reckless driving. Fines are not enough.

    Dhs 3,600 is peanuts for Justin Beiber. The fines system has to be a percentage of one's income. For example - For salaried residents, say 10% of ones monthly salary per fine, whatever the amount is. For visiting celebs it has to guaged in a different scale - say 10% of their revenue for the stage show. I am sure it can be tracked since there willbe event organisers who are managing the events and their accounts are audited. people will learn to be more careful on the roads.One must realise that a few thousands of dirhams in speeding fine is aninsignificant amount for the millionaires. They canafford to give it just for the thrill of riding fast. It is important torealise the value of God given life and to be considerate to otherpeople around - not driving around recklessly just for the fun of it.

    Any thoughts on appropriating speeding fees commensurate with the priceof the car?
