Dubai don't necessarily use these vehicles for general police use. They use them to try and eliminate the barrier between law enforcers and civilians. To better connect the people.

That's all very fine and well to pursue a criminal, but **** pulling a PIT maneuver in one of those. The amount of damage that'd be caused at those speeds and the cost of a crash would be insane.

We are talking Dubai here. Even the poor people there can easily pay that damage.

Have you ever been to Dubai? Most of the people there are actually paid **** all and are forced to work in 120 degree heats for the entire day. It's a place of extremes, there's a fair amount of really rich people, yes, but there's also a huge amount of people who break their backs creating all the famous buildings/landmarks who are barely paid enough to live.

oh, my bad. Where I live most of my friends think it's a place of pure luxury and excess. Me and a mate went there once and it was run down to **** everywhere except the small, richer districts. It was rather disheartening to see tbh, hundreds of people sleeping in a tented community on their work site because they can't afford anything else with people in multi-million dollar mansion only 20 minutes up the road.

You do realize that the only rich people in Dubai are the ones that make money from oil right? The rest of the people are just normal people.

I think the trading capital of the world is New York City, but OK.

Wrong, construction is huge there. Even the lowly construction worker gets paid quite a bit.

Yes, construction is huge there. Thats why they have an immensely big guest worker force so that construction wages are low.

No, they don't make ****, most people in dubai make a few hundred dollars a month, but things are cheap and there are no sales/income taxes
