UAE Announces Tough New Traffic
Rules and Fines
Road safety has become an issue of serious concern in the UAE. The country has an excellent infrastructure when it comes to the road transport network. However, for traffic to be smooth, everyone needs to drive safely and sensibly so that there are no delays due to accidents that are caused due to bad judgment and human error.
A Gulf News report that was published in February last year said that the top causes of accidents in the UAE are sudden swerving/lane change, misjudgment, not maintaining a safe distance, entering roads even when they are not clear, speeding, lack of attention, jumping red lights, lack of lane discipline. All these points to the need for stricter enforcement of traffic rules in order to increase the safety and comfort of motorists in general.
