Twenty-one pedestrians have died trying to cross roads in Dubai this year.
Gen Al Zaffin said 131 of those injured were male and 104 of the accidents occurred in daylight hours. He added that jaywalkers would be fined Dh200.
Gen Al Zaffin blamed the high number of accidents involving pedestrians on poor knowledge of traffic rules and crossing roads at unsuitable areas.
