Those failing to give way on left lanes to vehicles that wish to overtake face a Dh400 fine, the police said in a social media post on Tuesday.
A video posted by the police highlights the dangers of not giving way.
The police also warned that motorists must not overtake vehicles from the right. They must change lanes only after indicating and ensuring that it is clear.
The Dubai Police had earlier this year said that refusal to give way to motorists in the fast lane is illegal even if you’re driving within the speed limit.
The Dubai Police and Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) had released a video, explaining the rules of driving in the far left lane. The police reminded motorists that the lane is only for overtaking and emergency vehicles.
"Always drive in the right lane to ensure smooth traffic on the highway. In case a fast vehicle approaches you from behind, make way even if you’re driving within the speed limit,” a message read out in the video says.
