Traffic fine of SR 300,000 – Revenge of a Saudi wife on husband’s 2nd marriage

A woman in Saudi Arabia who was angry at her husband’s decision of 2nd marriage spent the night of his second wedding on a very creative form of revenge. 

The Saudi woman has sought decisive revenge on her husband for marrying a second time by incriminating him in traffic penalty value about SR 300,000 ($80,000) on his wedding night.

The Gulf News reported that it is the highest total fine ever registered by Saher. The irritated wife took a small van of her husband while he was rejoicing his 2nd wedding and she planned with her brother for a joyride to pass through red lights as many times as it could be.

The registration plate could be picked up by security cameras. As per Gulf News, both the brother and his sister were violating traffic rules throughout the evening, crossing red lights repeatedly and building up fines totaling approximately $80k which is SR 300,000.

A video clip of the car passing a red traffic light and reversing it to repeat the violation getting caught by the Saher cameras went viral on the internet. We have shared the video at the end of the article.

The clip shows that the jumping red lights purposefully result in large applause from the social media users with many speaking up to cheer or laugh at the woman.

A blogger Zahra stated that she was greatly amused at the whole scenario. I have no doubt that he was happily chit-chatting with his friends at his 2nd wedding while his van was catching traffic fines. He could not even imagine such a reaction from his 1st wife, but it is fair for him.

On the contrary side of the story, those people who were supporting the husband claimed that he would not be held liable for the traffic disobedience. 

Abu Arwa believed that the man was at his wedding with his new bride and there must be so many people who could be a witness that he was not driving his van. 

The brother and sister were responsible for violating the rules and they will have to pay the penalty as well as award imprisonment and give lashes also for their careless activities.

Southerner stated that the woman’s 1st wife should have self-assessment and self-examination and ask herself about the grounds that forced her husband for a second marriage rather than looking for different types of methods of taking revenge.
