Tail-gaters driving above speed limits should also be fined

Filed on January 22, 2020 | Last updated on January 22, 2020 at 08.25 pm

If someone is driving at the maximum permissible speed limit in the fastest lane, why should he or she be fined just because there is a reckless driver on the road who wants to drive at a higher speed (Tailgating in Abu Dhabi: Dh400 fine for vehicle in front; KT, Jan. 21)? Don't such drivers put safety of themselves and others at risk? What if such drivers lose control of their vehicles during their high-speed stunts? I think authorities should judge fairly before giving fines. The permissible speed limits and risk of reckless driving should be taken into account.
