Abu Dhabi Police have released video footage of a horrific crash resulting from a driver jumping a red light.
The video posted as a part of safety campaign 'Share your comment' on their Twitter page, shows a reckless driver flouting traffic laws by running a red light causing damage to both vehicles.

The police warned that motorists will be fined Dh1,000 and get 12 black points for jumping a red light and the vehicle is impounded for 30 days. The fine for heavy vehicles for the same violation is Dh3,000 with their licence suspended for one year.
The police also called on drivers to share their views on how they can be avoided.
Police investigations suggested that most drivers were jumping red light signal because of driving at excessive speed so they can cross before it turns red, recklessness and inattentiveness while behind the wheels.
"Running a red light is one of the most dangerous traffic violations, as proven by the deaths and serious injuries in accidents due to that violation," said police.
