Are you aware of the latest traffic rules? As part of their information campaign about the updated traffic laws, Dubai Police has released a video. It shows how a simple family outing can lead to AED 4,200 in fines if one is not aware of these traffic violations.
Dubai Police shared the informative video across their social media channels recently. It features a family driving along the road, unaware of the traffic rules they are breaking. The new traffic rules have been effective starting July 1 of this year.
