Motorists could be fined Dh400 and be penalised with 4 black points for not maintaining a safe distance behind vehicles.

In a video, Ras Al Khaimah Police said that radars to catch violators would go into effect from today (May 1), warning that maintaining an adequate amount of distance on the road is vital to one's safety.

Keeping a safe distance ensures that a motorist has sufficient time to be able to make a decision in case something goes wrong.

The video also highlighted that refusing to maintain the right distance puts lives at risk.

Authorities in other Emirates have also urged motorists to obey speed limits, especially during Ramadan. Speeding before Iftar or Taraweeh prayers is one of the leading causes of traffic accidents during the holy month.
