The driver was driving recklessly without leaving enough space from other vehicles, besides overtaking vehicles in direction and not abiding by the traffic signs placed for motorists.
Moreover, the vehicle that causes the accident would be impounded and would be released only after paying Dhs5,000 within three months.
According to Article (32) of UAE traffic rules, motorists will get a fine of Dhs 800 and 4 black points for using phones while being on roads, which could lead to the driver’s distraction and cause traffic accidents.
Abu Dhabi Police launched the initiative for early payment of traffic violations, which will start applying from December 22, according to which the traffic violations value, the value of the vehicle impounded and the delay fine (if any) will be reduced by 35%, in case of payment within 60 days of the date of the violation.
