Offenders will be fined Dh1,000 and given 12 black points for the traffic violation, as per Law No. (5) on Impoundment of Vehicles in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

The vehicle will, however, remain impounded until fees are paid. If the owner doesn't claim the vehicle within three months, it will be auctioned off, the authority noted on its official social media accounts.

Last month, the force arrested three young men for reckless driving and performing road stunts.
