Car jumps Abu Dhabi red light, crashes into vehicle


DUBAI – A driver crashed his speeding car into a vehicle that stopped at a traffic light in Abu Dhabi, raising renewed concerns about distracted driving as one of the leading causes of accidents in the capital.

The Ministry of Interior recently released footage of the crash, which shows two cars slowing to a stop at a traffic light while a third vehicle crashes into one of the cars.

The impact of the crash caused at least one car to veer off the road and land on the traffic island. The Ministry did not reveal further details about the incident.

The Ministry of Interior is conducting an ongoing awareness drive to reduce traffic accidents due to distracted driving.

In the UAE, using a mobile phone while driving can lead to a fine of Dh800 and four black points on the driver’s traffic file. GAD/Expat Media
