Abu Dhabi drivers reminded about child safety on the roads


Abu Dhabi police have shared a reminder with drivers about ensuring child safety while driving in the UAE capital.

In a series of posts on social media, Abu Dhabi Police has informed drivers that no children under the height of 145cm should be allowed to sit in the front of a vehicle in the UAE.

Drivers who ignore the rule will face a fine of Dhs400.

Instead, drivers are urged to have car seats fitted in the back of the car to ensure the safety of children and adults in vehicles when travelling on roads in Abu Dhabi.

In other changes to the Abu Dhabi road system, a new lane for emergency vehicles has recently been introduced on King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street.

In addition, a 50 percent discount on traffic fines has also been announced for drivers and changes to the road toll system, launching in January 2020, has also been announced.
