Dramatic footage has been released by Abu Dhabi Police showing a sedan skipping the red traffic signal and collided with a van, warning motorists to be cautious on the roads.
Tragic accident between sedan and van in Abu Dhabi
Disobeying traffic signals is a serious offence and the aftermath is often brutal. Yesterday, Abu Dhabi Police released footage of a motorist neglecting a traffic signal turning red and a speeding van rammed into the sedan damaging its front bumper and bonnet, causing its tires to screech.
Once again, the capital’s police force advises motorists to keep an eye other vehicles while on crossroads and junctions, as well as avoiding using smartphones while on the go.
Skipping traffic signals are no joke
It goes without saying, but neglecting the traffic signs can land motorists with hefty fines, impoundment and black points. Abu Dhabi Police says the violations follows with a Dhs 1,000 fine, 12 black points and a 30-day reservation of the car. The driver’s license will be suspended too.

Unless you’re in the know, a motorist recently plunged her car into Al Mamzar beach after receiving bad news over a phone call. While she escaped from the drowning car, the waves dragged her car 30 metres into the beach until maritime officers helped tow the car out. The incident happened weeks after an expatriate drowned his truck into Jumeirah beach trying to tow his jet-ski out.
