of the town of Mesaieed .
The area around the Sealine Beach Resort in Mesaieed has become a haven for Qatari youngsters
keen to test out their driving skills specially for those aged between 10 and 24 years old
the youngsters are practically challenging the law with their driving and continue to do so even after the
new traffic law, which calls for harsh penalties, was recently announced.
However, young Qataris have welcomed the law but said sealine beach is the only place they can
do their versions of stunt driving, on four-wheel drive vehicles, quad bikes and motorcycles.

A major complaint is that a separate area has not been allotted to these youngsters to allow them to
drive as they wish. Police had not too long ago said that such a facility would be opened to allow these
youngsters to let out their energy behind the wheel.

can be sought. This can then be supervised to avoid any mishaps.
