According to the federal traffic law, a fine of Dh500 and six traffic points will be slapped for this violation, he added.
Maj-Gen Al Zafeen called on motorists to be careful while driving and give attention to pedestrians. "Motorists should reduce their speed as they approach pedestrian crossings, especially while driving through densely populated areas," he said.
