New traffic surveillance cameras have been installed to catch violators for speeding, jumping a red light and not following mandatory lane rules.

Due to an increase in traffic offences at the Awafi bridge intersection and Al Hadaf (Target) intersection, Ras Al Khaimah Police have activated new cameras in these two locations.

Police on Monday said the new cameras have been installed to ensure the safety of motorists.

Drivers not following these rules will be slapped with a fine of Dh1,000 and will receive 12 black points. The vehicle will be impounded for a whole month.
