As part of the ‘Be Road Safe’ campaign, the Abu Dhabi Police have urged drivers to use the right lane of the road if they are driving at slow speeds so as not to obstruct the vehicles that are traveling at the specified speed on the road and give way to the vehicles that have the advantage of the road coming from the back or from the left side (fast track).
They pointed out that a fine of Dhs400 will be imposed on drivers on the left lane who do not give way to the vehicles coming from behind or on the left side.
