UAE: Distracted drivers to be fined Dh800

The Abu Dhabi Police has issued a warning to motorists about the dangers of engaging in activities while driving that could cause major road accidents.

Eating, applying makeup, and using the phone (talking, texting, and browsing the Internet) are some of the activities which can be penalized with Dh800 and four black traffic points.

Traffic police claim that distracted driving and irresponsibility are the main causes of many accidents on the road.

Recent police reports indicated that during the first half of 2022, about 105,300 drivers in Abu Dhabi received fines for using mobile phones while driving. BKM/ Expat Media
