To prevent accidents on UAE roads, the Traffic and Patrols Directorate at the Abu Dhabi Police has reminded the public about traffic rules through their social media platforms as a part of their awareness programmes and safety initiatives.
In order to raise awareness, the Abu Dhabi Police has released a video clip to educate commuters on how to change lanes correctly. A fine of Dh400 will be imposed on those who break this rule.
Very often, motorists change lanes, merge onto highways, exit highways, turn at T-junctions or 4-way junctions or exit roundabouts without the use of indicators. Even fines of Dh200 in Abu Dhabi (3 black points) or Dh400 in Dubai don't act as a deterrent.
The lack of indicator use is not only a nuisance and a sign of poor road habits and impolite behaviour, but it can also be dangerous when motorists don't indicate to other where they want to move
