Drivers face AED1,000 fine and ten black points for ignoring stop sign
Motorists in Abu Dhabi have been warned to pay attention to the stop sign on the side of school buses, or risk facing a AED1,000 fine and ten black points.
Abu Dhabi Police reminded drivers to stop when the sign is displayed as part of their ‘Be Road Safe Campaign’, which was posted on social media.
In September last year, Abu Dhabi Police revealed that all school buses would be equipped with cameras to catch motorists who were ignoring the stop signs.
According to the Abu Dhabi Police, a total of 3,664 drivers were fined in the capital during the 2018-2019 school year for failing to heed school bus stop signs.
School bus drivers also face a fine of AED500 and six black points if they don’t display the stop signs.For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
