200 AED Fine When Using Mobile Phone While Driving

A reminder to all drivers to please stop using your mobile phones while driving. There is a corresponding fine of 200 AED for this offense plus 4 black traffic points. Texting, calling, browsing, taking a selfie, etc. are all filed under using your mobile device and would constitute the same fine.
