Unless you've thrown your phone into the sea or gone on some kind of social media abstinence - you probably won't have missed the viral phenomenon that has been the #inmyfeelingschallenge, saturating your newsfeeds to the infectious beat of Drake over the last fortnight.

However, the challenge  - which, in its proper form involves the challenger stepping out of a moving vehicle and dancing beside - has been recently outlawed by the Dubai Police as it can endanger road users.

As a result, performing what has been coined as the 'Kiki Challenge' has been decreed as a serious traffic violation, punishable by up to Dhs2000 and 23 black points, as well as vehicle impounding for 60 days. 

Surely, a punishment that no amount of Insta likes is worth risking for, eh folks?
