Video: Distracted UAE driver crashes into multiple cars on highway
Police took to social media to issue a warning to motorists.
Shocking footage released on Friday recorded a vehicle slamming into multiple cars on a highway in Abu Dhabi.
According to a tweet by Abu Dhabi Police, the serious traffic accident was caused by a distracted driver who was later fined Dh800 and given four black points.
The horrific footage shows an SUV hurtling at top speed into a traffic jam, and barrelling into at least five vehicles before skidding to a stop on the side of the road parallel to oncoming traffic.
The video was released by Abu Dhabi Police in conjunction with Abu Dhabi Monitoring and Control Centre as part of its 'Be Road Safe' campaign and 'Your Comment' initiative to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving.
