Traffic control patrols at Sharjah Police General Command arrested 4 reckless drivers, who caused confusion to traffic and endangered their lives and the lives of road users as a result of reckless driving.
They tried to escape from traffic patrols on one of the internal roads in the emirate.
The Central Operations Room of the Sharjah Police General Command received a report stating that their dangerous behaviours and reckless driving were noticed at a very high speed on one of the internal roads.
The traffic patrols immediately moved to the site. However, the violating drivers fled after noticing the arrival of the police.
The traffic tracking systems and smart cameras of the Sharjah Police contributed to monitoring violators and identifying them after accurately locating them.
The General Command of Sharjah Police stresses that the police will not tolerate such reckless behaviours and the violators will be dealt with stringent punishment.
The police call upon drivers to abide by the specified speeds on the internal and external roads of the emirate, as speed is one of the cause of accidents.
They explained that a fine of Dhs300 will be imposed for exceeding the speed limit by up to 20 km/h, Dhs600 for exceeding the speed limit by up to 30 km/h, Dhs700 for exceeding the speed limit by up to 40 km/h and Dhs1,000 for exceeding the speed limit by up to 50 km/h.
The Abu Dhabi Police also warned some motorists about their negative behaviour, especially young motorists who disturb residents and drive recklessly on roads.
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.
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.
Abu Dhabi Police pointed out that the entrances, including Sheikh Zayed Bridge, Sheikh Khalifa Bridge, Mussafah Bridge and Maqta Bridge are not allowed to use during morning rush hours only by large buses transporting workers.
The campaign will contribute to identifying dominant strains and making appropriate preventative measures available and reflects the emirate's efforts to provide suitable vaccination options for citizens and residents....
