Flogging for the Fast Lane
From news-service reports
The small Gulf Arab emirate of Ras al-Khaimah believes it has finally found a solution to its chronic problem of rash driving: public flogging.
"Violators of the traffic rules would be flogged in public at a mosque that is the nearest to their houses," al-Bayan daily reported last week.
Speeders now face 50 lashes of the whip and 10 days in jail.
