Police in Dubai fining thousands of motorists for violating the traffic law, during the first seven months of 2017

Jumping the red light in Dubai is considered as one of the most dangerous and serious traffic violations. 
 
Where since the beginning of 2017, 19,270 motorists crossed the red light causing 56 accidents, due to which 83 people were injured.  
 
Luckily enough, such traffic violations didn’t lead to any loss of life but they still jeopardize the road safety in the diamond of the gulf Dubai!
 
In 2016, the police in Dubai recorded 29,328 motorists’ violations of red signals which caused 119 accidents to happen, leading to the misfortunate death of 3 people and injuries of 146 as a result to those crashes.
 
The year 2017 hasn’t proved to be as fatal, thanks to all the effective awareness campaigns about the newly amended traffic law that was set to action on the first of July 2017. This law imposed heavier penalties on serious traffic violations which discouraged motorists from doing dangerous traffic violations.
 
The main reason behind those motorists committing the violations of red light is that they follow other vehicles when they take off, while disregarding the yellow color of the light when it turns to red and this is where they bump into other vehicles.
 
For the situation to improve, motorists are highly-advised to change their mindset, where they don’t have to only abide by traffic rules but also drive attentively to avoid jumping red signals. Motorists can go for public transport as well which would not only solve traffic issues, but it would save them gas and contribute to the international eco-friendly effort.
