A Lamborghini owner from Dubai who recently made a roadtrip with his Italian supercar in Canada and the U.S. has gone viral after schooling an Oregon State Trooper on the law.
Dashcam footage uploaded to YouTube by the man shows the State Trooper approaching his car and asserting that he had pulled him over because the Lamborghini didn’t have any local license plates (it had Dubai plates). However, the Dubai man proves to be very knowledgeable of the law and tries to explain that he is permitted to drive without plates or a local registration.
Oregon Live was informed by an Oregon State Police spokesperson that “vehicles currently registered and titled in any other country, state or territory are not required to be registered by this state, provided the owner is not a resident of this state or has been a resident for less than 30 days.”
Throughout the video, the Lamborghini driver attempts to explain this to the State Trooper to no avail. The officer states on multiple occasions that he knows the law and repeatedly asks the Dubai man for a host of documents which he soon receives.
After receiving the documents, including the driver’s license, Dubai registration, and proof of insurance, the State Trooper quickly returns to the vehicle, hands the documents to the driver and asserts that he has to leave to respond to another call. He can then be seen accelerating away with his lights flashing and perhaps, with his tail between his legs.
The moral of the story? Know your rights and you could avoid getting an unjustified fine while driving.
