Harsher penalties for not stopping at a stop sign

Abu Dhabi Police have taken to social media to express their concern about drivers ignoring stop signs. Failing to do so will result in a fine of AED 500.

Posting on Facebook recently, the traffic safety campaign, #Darab_Alsalama (translates to Have a Safe Journey) aims at informing motorists on the rules of stop signs located in the capital and surrounding Emirates.

“Failure to stop may cause serious collisions because drivers do not use the intersections properly,” commented Abu Dhabi Police.

Drivers are also advised to give way to vehicles on the main roads as well as other vehicles coming from service and internal roads.

As per the traffic rule, stop signs should be located near the solid white line. Here, drivers must come to a complete stop and look both ways before entering the road.

Not only is it for the safety of other motorists, but for pedestrians as well especially in school zones.
