The Traffic and Patrols Directorate at Abu Dhabi Police called on drivers of heavy vehicles, trucks and buses, and owners of companies and who are in charge of labourers’ buses, to warn drivers to refrain from driving during fog.
This is to strengthen the preventive measures aimed at avoiding accidents in such weather conditions, in order to preserve the safety of everyone, the Traffic and Patrols Directorate added.
It further stated that the violation of driving such vehicles during fog breaking instructions of the concerned authority attracts a fine of Dhs500 and 4 traffic black points, according to the Decree No.178 of 2017 regarding traffic control rules and procedures in accordance with Article No.104 of the Traffic Law.
The Abu Dhabi Police also warned some motorists about their negative behaviour, especially young motorists who disturb residents and drive recklessly on roads.
Under the law, motorists who jump red lights and have their cars impounded for 30 days will need to pay a fee of Dhs50,000 to secure their vehicle's release.
The police stated that failing to leave a sufficient gap causes traffic accidents that result in human and material losses, and appealed to drivers to always abide by traffic laws and regulations to protect themselves and other road users from traffic accidents.
The traffic crackdown on unruly drivers was launched in response to reports department received from residents in the area on some reckless drivers committing severe traffic violations, says official.
