A British tourist has been handed a 36,000 fine in just three and a half hours after he raced his rented 260,000 Lamborghini across Dubai.

The man drove the 560 per day Lamborghini Huracan in the early hours of July 31st at speeds of up to 240kmh (150mph) - he was caught by several speed cameras on the eight-lane Shiekh Zayed highway.

The Huracan's owner, Mohammad Ibrahim, received several text messages from the car's computer system alerting him that the vehicle was continually breaking the speed limit. Concerned, he texted the driver telling him to slow down.

When interviewed by The National newspaper, Mr. Ibrahim said, "I had warned him that there are cameras everywhere in Dubai and that he would be liable for the fines".

News: Driving In France? Driving Laws You Need To Know

pocketgpsworld.com
France may be one of the most popular destinations for UK motorists heading abroad but a poll has revealed many of us are worryingly ignorant of the French driving laws.

I mentioned the laws covering the use of satnavs with speed camera alerts last week but a recent survey has revealed that more than half the drivers polled were unable to name any of the items you are legally required to carry, this despite those polled having driven in Europe recently!

Only quarter knew a high viz jacket was required for each occupant whereas a third were aware of the requirement to carry an approved breathalyser.

The poll by Alcosense found drivers were just as ignorant when it came to those items that UK-registered cars must carry on their exterior such as a GB sticker (or GB symbol on the number plate) and headlamp beam deflectors.

News: EU - Possible Deal on Access to Galileo PRS

pocketgpsworld.com
Whilst Brexit talks continue, news is emerging of a possible deal on access to Galileo's public regulated service (PRS) signal. If true this could mean our police and armed forces will retain guaranteed access to the secure encrypted signal that is PRS, a deal that surpasses anything offered to other non-EU countries.

Galileo's Public Regulated Service (PRS) is an encrypted navigation service for governmental authorised users and sensitive applications that require high continuity, it's resistant to spoofing and jamming and is intended for use by EU Member State government authorised users, e.g. emergency services and police.

However there has been no movement on allowing UK firms to build parts of the secure Galileo systems post-Brexit.

Reviews: Reviewed: Spytrack Nano - Personal GPS Tracker

pocketgpsworld.com

Personal GPS devices are ubiquitous these days, most of us will have a GPS capable smartphone or satnav for navigation but there is an entire other market for GPS, tracking. Whether it's to monitor your vehicle, company employees, a pet or child, a GPS tracker may be the solution you're looking for and the Spytrack Nano from Rewire Security is one of these devices.

Looking not unlike the Bluetooth GPS Receivers of old, the Spytrack Nano weighs just 68g and is little larger than a box of matches. Packed inside are a GPS receiver, a rechargeable battery, a GSM Transmitter and a SIM card. And all this costs a very reasonable 69.99.
