Double Takes

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.
