Abu Dhabi Police, in cooperation with the Monitoring and Control Center, and within the “You Comment” initiative and the “Safety Path” campaign, posted a video of the dangers of pedestrians crossing the road from places not designated for them.
The Traffic and Patrols Directorate called on pedestrians to adhere to the safe crossing of the places designated for them, to use bridges and tunnels, and to abide by light pedestrian signals at intersections that work in conjunction with traffic lights to regulate the movement of vehicles.
It urged drivers to pay attention to pedestrian crossings on the roads and to abide by reducing speeds, stressing that the safety and security of pedestrians is a shared responsibility between pedestrians themselves and drivers on the roads.
Abu Dhabi Police applies the Federal Traffic and Traffic Law Article No. 89, which is (a) that pedestrians do not comply with traffic lights, and (b) that pedestrians cross the road from places other than the places designated for their crossing, a fine of 400 dirhams.
