Five-hundred and eighty motorists had their licences confiscated last year for racking up 24 or more black points, Dubai Police said.
Motorists who drive slow in the fast lane of the highway, posing a threat to themselves and to the lives of others, can be fined even if they are driving over the minimum speed limit, the Director of Dubai Traffic Police has warned.
The joint Ministry of Labour and Dubai Police campaign ‘Cross Safely’ has been set up to target workers in labour camps to be aware of road traffic rules – and how ignoring them can result in tragic accidents.
Speeding accounts for half of traffic violations in Dubai. More than half a million speedsters have been caught on radars in the first nine months of this year in the emirate, according to a top official at the Dubai Traffic Police Department.
Fewer people are being killed on the emirate's roads thanks to police safety campaigns. There has been a 32 per cent drop in the number of deaths so far this year compared with the same period of 2011. Police said there were 38 deaths, down from 56 last year. Last month one person was killed, compared with 11 in May 2011.
