According to a senior police officer, the 26-year-old Emirati identified as A.A.R., died on the spot while the Asian man sustained several injuries. He was rushed to the hospital.

Khaleej TimesCaptain Salem Mohammed, Head of Traffic and Patrols Section at the Daqdaqa Comprehensive Police Station, said investigations showed that the Emirati entered the main road in the Daqdaqa area without checking if it was clear.

“His vehicle crashed into the car driven by the Asian, who was driving properly,” he said.

Mohammed urged all motorists to strictly observe traffic rules and regulations, and abide by set speed limits on internal roads and highways to prevent such accidents from happening in the future.

“As per the tougher unified traffic law with higher fines and a black point system enacted in 2008 all over the country, the erring motorists penalised with 24 black points shall lose their driving licence.”

“Driving callously costs erring drivers Dh2,000, 12 black points, as well as the impoundment of the vehicle for 30 days. Not carrying a driving licence or using a horn in a disturbing way, draws a fine of Dh100,” he added.

The case was referred to the prosecution for legal procedures.
