Once again, Abu Dhabi Police is reminding motorists to be cautious while driving on highways after sharing video footage of a daring motorist switching three lanes in an attempt to exit the road.
At first, the motorist, in a maroon Toyota Rav4, stopped on a hard shoulder after passing an exit he/she was supposed to take. Instead of redirecting the navigation, the motorist reversed his vehicle on the hard shoulder ahead of a few cars and drove pats the lanes to make it to the exit.
A slew of traffic laws were broken in the video footage, from the sudden deviation of the car, to provoking a multi-vehicle accident and putting other motorists and passengers’ lives at risk, in addition to an AED 1,000 with four black points.
Every now and then, Abu Dhabi Police rolls out video footage of dramatic scenes on the roads and accidents, warning motorists the dangers of using cell phones while driving, speeding in poor weather conditions and not adhering to driving rules and regulations.
In 2019, a staggering total of 894 accidents were reported in Abu Dhabi, including 20 deaths on record.
