A memorable day on a Dubai highway – Click above to watch video after the jump

Well, wouldn't 'cha know that it actually wasn't just another day in Dubai traffic. You may recall the video that we posted last Friday that showed a couple of hooning drivers doing wicked crazy burnouts, drifts and donuts all over public highways in Dubai... not to mention plenty of driving on two wheels. If not, now would be a good time to click past the break to see the video for yourself.

As it turns out, the two men – both UAE nationals in their 20s – driving the vehicles in question down Sheikh Zayed Road have been tracked down and arrested. As has happened in the past, police were able to identify the vehicles after seeing their license plates in full view from the videos uploaded to YouTube.

Let this be a lesson. A lesson of what, exactly, is up to you to discern. We'll go with a few: Don't hoon so obviously on highly trafficked public roads. Don't endanger the lives or livelihoods of your fellow citizens. And finally, don't upload videos of your illegal actions to YouTube unless you are willing to pay the consequences.

Oh, and speaking of consequences... these two drivers are reportedly facing up to three years in prison if convicted.
